I had Photoshop CS2 installed and running fine on a MacBook Pro (10.5.4, 2GB RAM), until it suddenly crashed and now will not open. Gives the error message: "Could not initialize because there’s not enough memory." I have 1.5 GB of memory free, and 70 GB of disk space free. I’ve reinstalled, tried creating a new user to run it, but nothing is working. I’ve found a couple of mentions of the same problem online, but no solutions. Can anyone help me?

Keep in mind CS2 is not supported in Leopard.

Also you know that CS2 is running in Rosetta (PPC emulation) Rossetta by itself is a Memory hog. 1.5GB is not much memory. and I have a feeling this is more a Rosseta problem than a Photoshop problem.
