Recover public folder data from old server following migration

Just completed a swing migration from small business 2000 to small business 2003. Active directory is fully functional, no errors in event viewer, and all mailboxes have been moved successfully. The migrated server is the only server left in the domain (original server and 'swing' server have both been removed). I remember moving public folders over to the new server during the migration but users are telling me (and I have verified) that the public folders are no longer in Exchange. Question is, what is the best method in this scenario to bring back the data?

I have a full system image of the original server and various backups from different points in the migration. Do I need to re-image the original server (2000 sbs) and extract the public folder data from the server (does exmerge do this??) Any help is appreciated.

I have been able to recover a pst of the the public folder (extracted from a user's outlook). How can I import this into a new public folder?

I'm thinking I will need to rebuild the old server (from image), reconnect pc to server, export public folder data into a pst, and import this pst into the rebuilt server. Can anyone validate/dubunk this plan for me?
