Need Photoshop Help

I am working on an image in Photoshop 7, which needs to be limited to using just 5 colors. How can I control the amount of colors that are being used in an image?

i think what you are able to do, is when you save a GIF, using "save for web", you can select the colors you want for the image.

so, what you could do, is just do your best to limit your colors to 5, and then just pick those 5 when you save it.

Correct me if i'm wrong?
