Sondratheloser, WELCOME to Mac Forums!!
Adobe does have a trade over program for Windows to Mac. I used it myself when I switched about 10 months ago.
In summary, you call Adobe's 1-800 customer service number, get a customer service agent, and explain that you want to transfer your existing CS2 license from Windows to Mac. They email/fax you a form, which you fill out and sign and send back to them. This form certifies that you have uninstalled your Windows version AND destroyed the media. When they receive the form, they ship you out a fresh copy of CS2 for the Mac.
The whole process took me about two weeks, most of that shipping delay. Adobe was VERY helpful and very supportive.
