Export public folder from Exchange 5.5 hard disk

Hi:

I'm trying to recover some public folders from an old installation of exchange 5.5.  I have the original hard drive from the old server that contains the private information store but I no longer have the server that the drive used to be attached to.  Is there a tool that allows me to export mailboxes or public folders directly from the hard disk so I can import them into our new exchange environment (i.e. without rebuilding the server?).

Thanks!

export public folders to PST from a client machine using the administrator account...then re-import them on the new server...again using the administrator account.

that is the easiest way.

Both of those suggestions require (I think) a running exchange server and all I have is the original hard drive with the pub.edb file on it.  I found PowerControls 3.0 but it's $1000.

Thanks.

can't be done any other way except with up and running EXchange server.
