Photoshop CS2 Question probably so simple I can't believe I can't find the answer. Help.

I'm recently upgraded to Photoshop CS2 and am using it on my MacBook Pro. All of a sudden, I can't draw a diagonal line using the line tool. I get some weird rotating box that sort of draws an incredibly hard to control line, but not the simple diagonal line I remember fondly from my earlier versions. I've gone to the tool preset manager and have reset the tool. That lets me sometimes draw one diagonal line the old way, but only at 1pt thickness. Then it pops right back to the weirdness. I know the answer is simple but searching Photoshop help under "diagonal lines" doesn't yield anything with the words "diagonal lines" in it. I've asked other Photoshop users and they just shrug and say "weird, man ... weird." I throw myself on the mercy of the hive mind for the simple toggle that will get me back to my simple diagonal line with the line tool.
