I have 2 users on a Client/MS Networks network, Schedule+, Office95/97, etc. They want to use ONE calendar, instead of maintaining separate calendars. Is this possible? Specifics please? We have the Office Resource Kit, so if there is an extended answer in there (which I haven't found), or another resource you would refer me to, please do so.

One way would be to attach both to the same account on the server. This might get some errors about file access violations (I've never tried it).  The other way would be to let one be the ower and the other a "DELEGATE OWNER". this would be the safest.  Setup the first user with the account.
 Set the other user in the permissions to DELEGATED OWNER.
 Make sure to tell them to sync the schedule often.
I set up delegated owners all the time.

good try, but I have already looked extensively in the ms/kb. I am sure that I just do not understand how to use outlook and/or schedule correctly, much less set them up for multiple shared user access. Since I entered my question, I have picked up some books on exchange server. These are not useful, and I now realize that exchange server is not an option, owing to the price tag.

spg1,
Don't let the article titles fool you. There is much more there that applies to your problem. As I said, I just had another client with almost the exact same problem and the steps on installation are critical.

Basically decided to have one of them a delegate owner of the other's schedule. However, the Microsoft Mail service was not installed on one Exchange client. Fixed that. Then had to import one copy of the "shared" schedule into the other's schedule, to manually "sync" them up. So it was stupid administrator trying too hard to make it idiot proof for the user. As it is, one user boots, loads Schedule+, and selects the other's Schedule+ to edit. The personal (local?) schedule window can be kept around, or better yet exited to prevent entering on the "wrong" schedule.
