Unfortunately the 2950 does not support the RSPAN VLAN unless you have the enhanced software. The RSPAN VLAN is a special type of VLAN in which MAC address learning is disabled. Without it, the source addresses you are monitoring would stay on the monitored side of the switch and never find their way to the monitor port.

It looks like you will have to put your monitor port on the 3550 if you can.
