Mailbox Restore Problem on Ex2003:  Lost Calendar & Contact entries...

Our ExecAssistant has recently noticed that some calendar/contact entries she makes in the Boss's Outlook 2003 are disappearing. So I thought about restoring from past backups just to make sure. I followed the steps outlined in this KB article, http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/264815.htm, but continually came up with an error as detailed in this other related KB article, http://seer.support.veritas.com/docs/275586.htm.

I even tried redirecting the restore to the "Recovery Storage Group" group i created...no dice.

Any thoughts?

As your backup was created using snap-shot technology, you need to use Recovery Server rather than using Recovery Storage Group. You need a separate box and then can recover the data.
Please have a look the this section "Method 3: Restore a Mailbox from Backup to a Recovery Server" from the following KB ->
How to recover or to restore a single mailbox in Exchange Server 2003
