Emergency!  Exchange mailbox store will not mount

I am stuck in a cupboard under the stairs with the Managing Director on his way in, and getting the following message whenever I try to mount the Exchange mailbox store:

Information Store (4648) First Storage Group: Database C:\Program Files\Exchsrvr\MDBDATA\priv1.edb requires logfiles 22296-22299 in order to recover successfully. Recovery could only locate logfiles up to 22298.

I'm currently backing up the whole log-files and database directory, but could anyone please advise me on what commands to run on this database?  I have the eseutil utility ready to run (haven't run it yet - backing up first), I have res1.log, res2.log, and e00.log, but don't know what the quickest way to resolve this is yet.  Can anybody advise?
