I am very surprised that Illustrator CS2 still imports the file at 
all. Yes, of course, the file does not have a CMYK profile, that kind 
of thing was not around in an EPS format designed in 1990.

I presume you know that Illustrator CS2 can import PDF? I cannot 
imagine any reason why one would use the 15 year old extremely limited 
Illustrator 3 export that does not even support the most basic 
ArtWorks features when you can use state-of-the-art PDF export that 
supports even very advanced ArtWorks features.
