If you only have the flat files and not an Exchange aware backup then your options are limited.
If the server and Exch org name are the same then you may be able to get the folder to mount in a recovery storage group. If anything is different then that will not work.

The other option would be On Track Power Controls. That can extract the data from the flat files.

If you have the following files then you will be okay for the most part:
• Priv1.edb
• Priv1.stm
• Pub1.edb
• Pub1.stm

You can follow the steps outlined in this Microsoft KB Article: http://support.microsoft.com/kb/313184

If you run into any problems with that, use the Exchange Disaster Recovery Analyzer which will essentially run the ESEUTIL for you.  A tutorial is here:  http://www.msexchange.org/tutorials/Exchange-2003-Disaster-Recovery-Analyzer-Tool-ExDRA-10.html
