on form 1098 t do i subtract line 5 from line 2

    No, that is TurboTax' job.  When in the Education Expenses section, you will be asked to enter the 1098-T numbers.  Enter them exactly as presented.  You will next be asked to enter other qualified education expenses that are not listed in box 2 of the 1098-T (like course related books, supplies and equipment).  Also any other financial aid not listed in box 5 of the 1098-T.  Internally TurboTax will subtract what was paid with financial aid from what was actually paid in qualified education expenses to get the number of expenses paid out of pocket and available to the Education Credits.  Do not subtract them yourself or the subtraction will be done twice.
