You do have the disksfor RHEL 3 right? You can't just do a 'net upgrade of RHEL because of the licensing issues...
When the documentation is referring to the boot prompt: it means the boot prompt you get when booting from the RHEL installation disk, not a command prompt. So insert the RHEL 3 disk 1 into the computer and bootup.. you will get the "Red Hat" linux graphic and a promptthat displays "boot:" this is where you want to type "linux upgrade" you can also press F2 at this point to view additional options for booting.
It should work if, at the boot prompt, you key "linux upgrade" it should continue just like a normal install would though it will be an upgrade, so you'll save your docs and settings..
