So, everything I have read is that I need to export my V5 file to an .idml file, and then, from InDesign 4, export it to an .inx file for InDesign 3.

Note that Creative Suite version numbers are *not* the same as InDesign version numbers since two releases of InDesign already existed before Creative Suite was ever envisioned. You mention CS3, which is not the same as InDesign 3.0; the CS3 version of InDesign (vintage 2007) was actually v5.0 in the InDesign version numbering. InDesign 4.0 (vintage 2005) was also known as InDesign CS2.
