[texhax] Help formatting table of contents

I'm using LaTeX to write my dissertation, and I need to ask for
assistance in changing the table of contents format.

My university department has an "unofficial" documentclass that's more
or less a family heirloom.  It's passed down from generation to
generation of graduate students and each hier touches it up as
necessary to conform to university formatting requirements.
Ultimately, the documentclass was based on report.cls; and I think
that a solution that works with the standard report class will also
work for me.

Attached is a sample document for illustration.  The sample document
has a table of contents where the page numbers are right-aligned
against the right margin of the page.  I need the page numbers to be
right-aligned 5.5 inches from the left margin of the page.

I'm sure that my TOC will be longer than one page, so putting
\tableofcontents inside a minipage isn't an option.  I've tried
changing \textwidth before and after \tableofcontents, but that does
not seem to have any effect.

Any suggestions on how to change the position of the page numbers?

Many thanks in advance.
