[Michael Lansdell] "When I try and do this with CS3 it creates what it calls a Vector Smart Object"

Although this doesn't work for what you're trying to do, I recommend you look into Smart Objects, they're one of the most valuable features introduced in CS. They are essentially embedded files (in CS3 Extended this could be an AI file, MOV file, DXF file or more commonly a PSB file) that are preserved 'as is' outside of your document. You can scale such Smart Objects down and apply 'Smart Filters' (new in CS3) without changing the original embedded document, you can always go back to square one.
