Go with the upgrade, you save a pant load of cash. All that is 
happening is the upgrade installer looks for the older version and, 
once confirmed, it installs the complete application. In the past all 
you needed to do was insert the install CD for the older version and 
didn't need to actually have it instaled. This leaves you with two 
fully functioning versions of Photoshop. In the future, I believe that 
you can upgrade the new one without the presence of the older one. (but 
keep the old one's install disk around, just in case.) On the other 
hand, you get a big break on the whole CS suite when you upgrade from 
any version of PS - you might consider that as well.
