Can I import from a backup an exchange 5.5 store into a fresh install of exchange 2003?

I have a backup of my exchange 5.5 information store on a tape drive.  My server 5.5 crashed and I cannot restore the database.  I subsequently built an exchnge 2003 box.  I would like to know iff I can resore the 5.5 store into 2003 exchange

Sorry but this is not possible, you will have to restore to an Exchange 5.5 System and then migrate to Exchange 2003.

You definitely need to recover your Exchange 5.5 server first - no big deal

Try following these instructions and post back your errors if you do not get anywhere
I was able to use the ontrack software to recover my store.exe
