Default Colors out of gamut?

I've got a photo with a lot of hot pink/magenta-ish flowers, and Photoshop is showing me exclamation points which I assume means the colors are out of gamut for CMYK.

Anything I can do about this? When I convert to CMYK, the flowers turn a drab, washed-out lavendar.

Got PS CS2, although I'm still using PS 7. I really need to migrate my actions and color settings to CS2, one of these days, and start using it already.

Layer > New Adjustment Layer > Levels

or click on the 4th icon from the left at the bottom of the layers palette...
