The Camera RAW plugin is here. You can also try to run CS updater from the Help menu.

The current version of Camera Raw (4.3.1) requires CS3. If you have CS2, the latest version you can run is 3.7. This version does not support raw files from the Canon 5D so I had to upgrade to CS3 to be able to work with raw files when I got my current camera.

If all you have is the original CS, I'm not sure what version of Camera Raw it supports or whether it will handle the raw files from your camera. You do have the option of using other software to convert your raw files to something that Photoshop CS can handle. The software that came with your camera will probably do it.

I still use Photoshop CS and even though I have the Camera Raw Plugin, I cannot open the RAW files from my 30D because the 30D files require a newer version of the Plugin than CS supports. It's Adobe's way of gently (or not so gently) keeping the push to upgrade on. I've had to fine other ways to process my RAW files and that's fine for me right now.

I'm not sure about this, but I think you can download the Adobe DNG converter, which converts your Canon RAW files to Adobe's DNG raw format, then you can open the DNG files in CS. I hope this helps. Here's the link:
