To bring up the timeline, go to Window > Timeline, as shown below.

This will bring up the Timeline window, also shown below. Note: the timeline panel is empty, as I do not have a animation set up.

I am still using CS3 myself, it might be similar to CS4

first enable Window > Animation

then, to switch between Frames or Timeline, click on the bottom right side of the animation window:

Have you tried opening an image or creating a new document to see if that enables the switch?

I have tried opening different file types: jpg, png, psd, gif and a blank page.  All have the same result.  Choosing animation goes to frames view and the switch to timeline vie greyed out.

Only Photoshop extended is able to work those advanced features: https://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/pressroom/pressmaterials/pdfs/cs4_photoshop_photoshopext_whatsnew.p...

And for CS3: https://www.adobe.com/aboutadobe/pressroom/pressmaterials/pdfs/cs3_photoshop_extended_whatsnew.pdf
