I have Outlook 2002 running on XP pro and I want to set up 2 profiles on the same acct on the same computer.  I would like them to share a contact list and calander, but NOT E-Mail addresses.  Can this be done, and if so...how?

Not elegantly. You could create a new PST file and put a Calendar folder and Contacts folder in there. Then you could open that PST file from both profiles (not at the same time of course).

However, there is no way to make that Calendar the default Calendar for the users. Same iwth Contacts. Although you can add that Contacts folder as an email address book by right clicking on the folder and choosing properties. Then select the Outlook Address Book tab and check the button for "make this folder an address book".

Oh, and the users would still have their own Calendar and Contacts folders that were completely separate from the shared one and there's no way to remove the default ones.

That is import/export, not sharing.  You would have to add one contact to both to keep them synchronized.
