    Strange question I know but I've been using Photoshop 7 and intend upgrading to CS3 soon but with the pennies I got for Christmas I decided to get myself a graphics tablet. Searching this forum suggested that the Bamboo Fun was the way to go for the price. When I opened it up I found a copy of Elements 5 bundled with it so do I

    Install both.

    I have Elements 5, CSS 3 and lightroom on mine and still use all three depending and what I want to do.

    I have a similar setup too,
    Each can justify its presence on the System. If however, you later find yourself using one rather infrequently you can decide if its occasional use is worth it or simply uninstall it
