How do I retrieve an Outlook form from a backup of my Exchange server?

OK, here's the synopsis.  I upgraded my exchange server in March to SBS2003 and Exchange Server 2003 and re-published any customised forms.  However it seems one form slipped by the wayside and I do not have the original ost file.  I do however have a complete full backup of the old server, including the exchange folder structure but I cannot find out if there is a particular file that is created after publishing my form.  I presume it gets published to the public database file, but short of reinstalling exchange 2000 and restoring to it, I can't see how I can retrieve it from this.

Has anybody done this before or know exactly how to do it?

Thanks in advance

You are going to have to build a recovery server and restore the data.
The published form data is held in a system folder which is part of the public folder structure.
You will also need to have a workstation with Outlook connected to the recovery domain so that you can recover the form.

Thanks Simon, this is too much work for one single form.  Points awarded for giving me answer to my question.
