I've seen that 5.5 works, but sometimes crashes when trying to access the Preferences menu.. also will sometimes crash when saving files. Haven't heard any other success stories though with later versions.

The equivalent of Photoshop in Linux is The Gimp, which usually does a very good job indeed.

Oh I know, one reason why I have a dual boot with Win98 on one machine.. mainly for Photoshop and scanning, since my scanner doesn't work in Linux.

Sorry but no. You need a working P166 Linux box and run Photoshop 7.0 via Wine.
