I did this in CS5, but have also followed the same steps in CS2.

First, create a new project. and select the shape tool.

Select which shape you want to put your text one. I used a heart.

Select the paths tab.

Create a new path

On the new path, use your shape tool to make the shape.

Next, select the text tool.

Make sure to click the left justify so that the text will begin where you click. Then click where you want to begin typing

Type away. You can use part of the shape, or the whole shape...

When you are done adding the text to your path, click on the layers tab to return to your project.

Now, click on any other layer in your project, and the shape will disappear, but the text will remain visible.

Happy typing on a path!
