I think you have two separate issues there. In the BIOS, you may need to enable PAE so Windows sees 4GB of memory. I presume the BIOS itself does see 4GB?
As for Photoshop, CS5 is still very new so it might be a good idea to contact Adobe themselves. Other than this, you could try looking through the event logs for clues as to why it's crashing. Presumably other applications are OK?

Personally if I was running Photoshop CS5, I would probably run it on either XP 64Bit or Win 7 64Bit as the available memory available would speed things up quite a bit.
I suppose as an alternative you could explore Adobe downgrade rights (if it exists) and run CS4 which should have most of the bugs ironed out.
