Cjb24 your Creative Suite 3 serial number is OS specific.  If you have a license for a Windows version of Photoshop CS3 then you will be unable to utilize that license on Mac OS.

I would recommend setting up a virtual machine with Windows 7 and installing Photoshop CS3 within the virtual machine.

You can verify the operating system of your Creative Suite 3 license by viewing it under your account at http://www.adobe.com/.  You can find more details on how to locate your serial number at Find your serial number quickly - http://helpx.adobe.com/x-productkb/global/find-serial-number.html.
