photoshop shadows

Drop shadows really aren't new to me, but all of a sudden, every shadow i create seems to have a "hard edge" even if i just use the paint brush tool and have it set to a 0 hardness it still appears to have an edge. RGB isn't as bad as CMYK, but since i'm a print designer CMYK is what i need. The shadows just don't seem to fade out to nothing. These are also on a white background. Is this a CS3 issue? It just seems to me if you use the airbrush tool and its set to "0" it should have a smooth fade to the white background. Even adding a Gaussian Blur makes it worse.
