You should only need to install it to windows. However, some fonts can be a bit odd about showing up in the photoshop list. If this happens, put a copy (or shortcut) into the C:\Program Files\Common Files\Adobe\Fonts\  directory.

You may also need to delete the photoshop font list, which will cause it to rebuild. If the above doesn't work, I'll see if I can remember what the file's called!

Thanks George :) I'll give it a go when I (gently) wrestle the big PC back from Sam :)

I think the last time I did this I just lobbed the font file into C:\WINDOWS\Fonts. Seemed to work......
