My sbs2003 server crashed and tape is no good. I do have the mdbdata folder and want to know how I restore the emails. Can I just drop the old mdbdata folder in the new one?

Prior to doing make sure you install all the service packs for SBS2003 and exchange and you must remember the storage group and administrative group names if you specified any thing else apart from default.
They should go smooth. I guess you will have hard time though but it's still possible
