photoshop on flash drive?

I'm about to go interstate for a couple of weeks, I'll be spending a lot of time alone so I need to be able to do some photo restorations and photo art while away. I have photoshop CS2 and have permission to install it on the computer I will be using but I was wondering if photoshop could be installed on a 1g flash drive which I will be taking with me? And would it run from it or should I just take the disks and install on the new computer and then remove it when I come home?
Thanks

PS (at least the Windows version) scatters files all over the hard drive. There's no way to install it all into one set of subfolders.

Thanks Doug, I though there would be a problem like that. It would be ok to install on the other computer and uninstall when I leave though. Right?

It might not activate if you've already activate it on your computer. I'm not real clear on how many installs PS allows. I think it's two, but it might only be one. You might be better off just installing the evaluation version on your friend's machine.

Thanks Doug. I couldn't live for nearly 3 weeks without using phtoshop. The evaluation version might be the answer.
