The adjustments you make in Camera Raw will not be recorded as part of the action. You need to make the adjustments to all of your images in ACR, doing as much work as you possibly can there. Then you click on the "Done" button, and this will commit the changes. Then you need to design your action so that it will open those raw files and do any additional processing that you want done in Photoshop.
You can synchronize groups of images in ACR and apply changes to all images at once that way, but you cannot record ACR changes in an action.
Just one other observation. I think you misspoke when you said that you are using Camera Raw 3.0. You need to have at least 4.0 for Photoshop CS3, but you should upgrade to ACR 4.1 if you haven't done so already.
Would be nice if you could record the selection of an ACR preset, at least.
Whether or not the Camera Raw parameters are recorded in the action depends on which of the first times in the settings flyout menu is checked.
