Image>rotate>custom and enter left or right and number of degrees. Then crop the resulting image as you want.

Use the Ruler tool to draw a line along the horizon. Then Image, Rotate, Custom (or Arbitrary depending on version). PS will then put the angle in for you.

..or, if you are using CS2 you can use the lens correction filter and just draw a line ( click for the first end and then click for the other end ) along the potential horizontal that you want ( could be the horizon ) and it'l rotatet the image to make that line flat / straight.

I also use:

duplicate layer
edit
transform
distort

and then pull a corner till it straightens .. this helps when you dont want to lose much of the image that is cropped when rotating or if you have a vertical in the image that needs to be kept as it is as much as possible.

These days camera's do almost everything apart from wipe yer bum so I have often wondered why a little piece of gadgetry inside the camera doesn't give you a viewfinder confirmation of level if required.
