Hi Rory,

I think you may have no choice but to restore the Ex55 server.
By default in a Exchange site, the first Exchange server has
some information inside.  See the technet article.
It will be much easier in the production environment, follow
the article move everything to Exchange 2000 and take the Ex55
offline before go to the disaster recovery site.

We are in the midth of migration and we are studying the same
problem you facing now.;EN-US;Q152959

The late nights might be causing me to miss something really basic here, but
I am stuck. 
I have setup a duplicate sight (active directory domain) at our Disaster
recovery venue.  The active directory is up including the dns and the
dcdiag.exe runs through perfectly.  However, when I do a system state
restore on my exchange server to be, and then try to install exchange 2k, it
keeps prompting for an exchange 5.5 server in the site.  PLEASE HELP.  I
obviously am not going to install an exchange 5.5 server here.  
The site at the office does however have an exchange 5.5 server, and I
joined that site when I installed exchange 2k. 

Thanks in advance
