in outlook. when you creat new public folder, you can make the public folder "contact item folder" instead of "mail item folder" this is going to be the folder where every body can add/modify addresses.

Just add a "contact" in active directory users and computers with an external email address. Give the contact the appropriate name and assign it the external email address, it will then be viewable in the GAL.

The best way I have found to do this is to create a contact folder like wuzhongdl said.  To get the folder to show as an address book in outlook right click the folder and go to properties.  Then click on the outlook address tab and check the box that says show this folder as an email address book.  

If you want outlook to search the address book when you type a persons name in go to tools and then address book.
You then need to go to tools then options.  Click the add button and select the address book from the list and click add again.  If you want to change the search order off the address books move them up or down in the list.

Another thing don't forget to give the user permission to the address book by right click it and going to properties.  Then click the permissions tab and add the people and permissions that you want.
