I have a legitimate CS3 Creative suite.  I know Adobe discontinued their servers so I can't authorize it online.

However, I know they offered an Offline installer at some stage.

Is that still downloadable somewhere?

(And if so, will my current serial # work with the Offline installer)

No.  The activation-free offer is gone forever.  Nobody should be using outdated software from 2007 for security reasons.  Too much has changed since then.
