gosh...looks like i've NO choice..
ADOBE® CREATIVE SUITE® 4, 5, AND OTHER RECENT RELEASES OF ADOBE SOFTWARE
You don’t have to take any action to activate your software. Activation happens in the background as soon as the software detects an Internet connection.
CREATIVE SUITE 3 AND EARLIER VERSIONS AS WELL AS OLDER VERSIONS OF ADOBE SOFTWARE
You activate by phone or the Internet. For more information, see Activation and deactivation.
anyway, i interpreted his question as him wanting to install 2 copies of the same serial key on 2 different computers.
found this. it might be helpful:
So, in general, how many systems can you install Adobe software on, including CS5? The answer for individuals (as opposed to businesses) in most cases is two. The catch is that both computers must be used only by you and the two systems cannot be used at the same time. This policy was designed so that you could run (say) Creative Suite at home on your desktop PC, as well as while travelling with your laptop.
i suggest TS install on both of his computers, then connect his Pc No. 2 to the internet to activate it, and then disconnect it from the internet since you mention that it does not need an internet connection. this way, you will never be using 2 copies at the same time
or rather, they will never know

Thanks so much deathrequiem. I'm a little uncertain what u mean by "i suggest TS install on both of his computers,...." ?? Install on both PCs right? But i also need to activate on 1st PC then how? Won't Adobe knows tht i activate twice?...
Forgot to add...both PCs are going to be used by the same person
ohh really? Wow, tht's cool. I'm delighted now hoho!! Thanks raydio.
This is to facilitate, an individual who has a desktop installation but wants to bring Photoshop on the road with him/her, and so will bring their laptop loaded with Photoshop. As long as one does not use both installations of PhotoShop at the same time, then Adobe is happy.
Thanks once again raydio & deathrequiem. Just curious, can i install it in PC2 in a few months time as PC2 hardwares are nt ready yet? In another words, will Adobe allow me to delay my activation on PC2?
Wow..don't know about tht, smtg new for me. Thank u very much raydio
