This program is driving me crazy

I installed Final Cut Studio 2 with all the other crap that comes with it (Motion, Livetype, DVD Studio Pro, etc). All the other programs are working fine, but whenever I try to open the actual FINAL CUT program it bounces once in the dock, and won't load.

Keep in mind that before installing all this software it is recommended that you have 1 GB of RAM, but I only have half that. That said, I was told that it would work anyways, and all the other applications do.

I've tried deleting preferences, making a new account on my Mac, but nothing works.

I have all my software (including Final Cut) updated and ready to go, but it just won't start working.

What should I do???

I am recently a new Mac user after years on a PC, how silly i was to stay there so long!! So now with my new Mac i am after Final Cut Studio 2 and Final Draft. As i have just shelled out thousands for my new set up, i am open to ideas on how to get these 2 programs. I would love to say that i would like to just walk into a shop and purchase both straight out, but realistically i am not Donald Trump and don't have his cash either. So if anyone has ideas or can help out a new Mac user, it would be greatly appreciated.
Thanks
