How to restore an individual Exchange 5.5 mailbox with Backup Exec 11d

We have an Exchange 5.5 server and have been backing it up with Backup Exec 11d.  We are backing up the entire information store and not using legacy backup support.  My question is, can we restore an individual mailbox without restoring the entire information store?  Or is it possible to  restore the entire information store and then pull the mailbox from that?

With Exchange 5.5 your only option is a recovery server. You would have to restore the entire store, mount it and then extract what you need using exmerge. There is no recovery storage group like there is on Exchange 2003 and higher.

Ok, so I need I'll need to restore the entire information store to a separate place.  Is there anywhere to help guide me through the remaining part dealing with Exchange 5.5?

Separate place? Bit more than that.
Separate domain, separate servers. You basically need a clone of what you have.
In the good old days of Exchange 5.5 most major shops would have a recovery domain and those that couldn't used the Ed Crowley Never Restore method.
The DR guide may have information of use: http://www.microsoft.com/technet/archive/exchangeserver55/support/exdisrec.mspx

I haven't found much else because the world has moved on - Exchange 5.5 has been a dead product for a very long time. I haven't seen an Exchange 5.5 server for nine months and last time I did a recovery on one I think we still started the year 19..
