It can be done, and I know of people who have done similar upgrades, but
it
will require a step-wise approach.

Refer to a similar thread from a few weeks ago and use the advise
described
there.

If it were my project, I’d upgrade to the last 1.2 version first. It
has
deprecation warnings for the upgrade to 2.0. Fix them, then upgrade to
2.0.
Check everything into version control. Then try upgrading to 2.3.11.
Fix any
warnings and run it for a bit to shake the bugs out. Then upgrade to
3.0.6.
There is a plugin or gem, rails_upgrade, that checks for deprecated
code.
Unfortunately, it is not being maintained. From discussions on the
rails-core
mailing list, is sounds like someone has forked it and is maintaining
it. It
will help. But the 2.3 => 3.0 upgrade is a many day process.

If Ryan B. has a Railscast on the upgrade, watch it. His screencasts
are
uniformly excellent.

HTH,
