Well i use to use photoshop 7 but i just got a new computer today so i got CS2. I dont really see the difference in either but i didn't really check it out. So what are the differences?

Ok, heres one.

Save that render to your computer, and then go into Photoshop 7.0

Make a new document, 500 by 500 and copy and paste that render into it.
Select the layer with the render in it, and press control T. Now make the render bigger. Now notice how its really blurry and gross looking? Now go into CS2. Do that same thing, and lok at the difference. It looks just the same, maybe a little choppy, but nothing major. Thats the biggest difference..theres also other user friendly differences.

Edit - Forgot to say, is that PS CS2 is 400mb. Which means its a lot of memory. So most of the brushmakers aren't keeping PS 7.0 on their computer, like MetalCX, has lately been publishing his brushes for CS2. Eventually, your going to have to upgrade.

Yea, it doesnt really matter what is the difference. CS2 is alot better, and advanced than 7.0 If you just look at each, they are different. You can figure this stuff by yourself. Your a big kid now.
