I have tried to install CS5 on my machine with the design standard disc. The message " the media type is not supported " comes up when I try to install CS5. Any ideas?

Yep, because both CS5 and CS5.5 installed just fine on Lion for me.

It is the mac version and it is a cd. Our tech support guy at work has installed it at work but they are still using Leopard. I am in Education and need a copy on my home machine for work. The Acrobat disc loaded up without a problem.

Well there's your problem -- you're using a pirated copy. Adobe doesn't ship CS on CD.
