so, as someone that never uses the terminal but does use the classic envirnment (which crashes periodically), how do I go about finding that pesky rescued items folder?

Just to clarify, there were about 10 Rescued items folders, and I think they were in /Trash rather than /.Trashes

If you've never used the terminal I'd recommend using a GUI tool like Xupport or similar, you can do some real damage with the sudo rm command above, especially if you carelessly insert a space after the /
google for a mac os x terminal guide, or type man rm into a terminal for instructions, and its always safer to practice somewhere other than the root directory.
