Windows 2003 virtual session, running Exchange 2003

Power outage caused improper shut down.

Can't mount store.

error in the E00.log file (Jet error of some type).

What's the quickest way to get this online ?

I have good copies of the pvi1/pub files, there are also a coupe dozen other log files in the folder as well. The store is 68GB so kinda large.
