Can I recover an Exchange 2003 database (SBS) to a newly created Exchange 2003 server (non-SBS)?

We recently acquired a small company, however, we did not acquire its server equipment.  I was provided the domain name, the server name, and the priv1.edb, priv1.stm, pub1.edb and pub1.stm files, that was it.
I need to get the emails from this database.  Hence with no AD backup, I cannot utilize the ExMerge utility (which would be the ideal scenario).  
Originally this was all on a SBS Server.  I have created a test domain, in our environment, using the previous company's domain name and have named the Exchange Server the same as the SBS server's name was.  When I go to mount the database, I get an error C1041724.  The Information Store service does start and the System Attendant service does start.  In the APplication log, I get Event ID #9175 Source:MSExchangeSA (stating the Exchange Server is not available).   Can anyone provide any guidance?

Resolution Steps (settings) in KB827283 proved out to be as they should.  Any other suggestions?

I ended up finding out that the old Exchange server was still available after all (it was believed to have been sold and wiped clean).  I was able to export the data I needed via ExMerge
