IRIX dropped support for COFF at 6.5, but the Adobe apps are ELF. There 
is a 3.0.1 update for Photoshop which is required before it will even 
run at all past 6.2 (or was it 5.3?)

The silly thing is they're basically just toolbox ports from the 
Macintosh. You get the same file dialogs, the same Chicago typeface... 
and the same crashes.
