Rounded dotted lines are easy,(using a round brush as base) just setup the spacing bigger in "brush tip shape" settings.

When wanting dashed ones, add square tip brushes if you havent got there, it comes default in the "load brushes" list at brushes window (accessing from right top corner icon in this brushes window). Choose a square tip brush. In brush tip shape settings again, just set the "roundness" at a low value, ie, 30%. Angle at 0º or 180º. You will want the strokes to follow the curve. For this, check "shape dynamics", and in 'angle jitter', set "direction" (just that).

A good combination is to use photoshop paths and then stroke to path. This can give you extra accuracy and flexibility.

Edit: Sorry, forgot. Remember to setup angle jitter to zero.
