    sure, I would say first,..upgrade the Exchange 5.5 server to Exch 2003

    Then add it to the same organization as the cluster

    From there check ms's info on adding a new exch 2003 server to a cluster

    install a none clustered exchange 2003 server into the exchange 5.5 organization as the SRS.
    then you will be able to add the exchange 2003 cluster to the same organization.  

    move all of the resources across to the cluster and when you are sure that you have no more need for the
    exchange 5.5 server to can remove it and then remove the srs server.
