no.  Two people cannot open the same PST file.  You could creat a "central" pst file that you open when needed but would need to close it before the other user could open again.

NetFolders is your best option.  If you don't want to spend any money (as apparently you don't), it is probably your only option.

Unless you're using Outlook 2002.  Then you pretty much have to go to a web based solution.

What version of Outlook are you using, and do the people who are "sharing" the calendar have to all be able to make changes to it, or can you have one person in charge of updating the calendar?

I assume you are talking about sharing over a LAN.

Yes! you can share the same calendar or .pst file, but without extra software, only one user can access the file at a time. Just create a .pst file on a shared/mapped network drive and open the new file via File/Open/Outlook data file from the top left on the tool bar. You can manage the files with File/Data File Management from the tool bar.

If you want more than one user to simultaneously access the same calendar or .pst file on the network, you must pony up for exchange, the solution at slipstick.com referenced above, or workgroupfolders (haven't seen anyone mention this solution before, this is the main reason I am commenting)
