I have been using CS3 for some time now, I thought I'd got the gang of many of its features, but one is eluding me.
I took a shot of a Norman Castle Keep the other day, it looks great except that the lens distortion makes parts of it appear to lean backwards.
I know there is a correction tool within CS3 menus, but after being shown once, some time ago.....I can't remember where it is.
Could a Photoshop savvy member advise please?

I'm not sure about CS3 but in CS5 (and 6) it's under 'Filters' > 'Lens correction.'
If lens correction doesn't work, try Edit - Transform. You'll find a list including Perspective there.
Just checked my old copy of CS3 and (only in RGB) it's under filters>distort>lens correction.
Jester and Frabstor are correct for the lens correction tool, you can also do a basic correction by using the crop tool and ticking the 'perspective' box at the top of the screen. This will allow you to pull the corners in to match the angle of the lines you want to straighten and it will crop and correct.
A HUGE THANK YOU! folks...
The info is now backj in my old memory banks:
Quote: you can also do a basic correction by using the crop tool and ticking the 'perspective' box at the top of the screen.
Agreed and in many cases it will work, provided the shot has been taken from directly in front of the subject. If the shot's been taken at an angle across, or looking upwards at the subject, then correcting verticals, using this tool or a version of the 'transform, distort' action can and more often than not does, lead to distortion elsewhere within the image.
Using the lens correction tool is a more subtle approach.
Jester I can see that you're well up to date on the subtle differences between versions. I'm thinking of upgrading to CS6. How much did it cost you and what were main benefits (from photographer's point of view)?
PM on way.
