Using Outlook 2003 / Windows SBS 2003

I have implemented shared calendars successfully, however, I would like to know if there is any way to do the following:

1.  One user wants to share their calendar (read-only) with other users, however, the user only wants other users to see his calendar time as either free or busy, and not be able to "read" all the contents of each calendar event.  

Is this possible?  How to implement?  I do not want to use the microsoft free/busy service (I don't think it would work anyway in this shared calendar environment), but I want the same functionality as it gives.

Thanks in Advance!

Hi compinfo,
If this is for people in your GAL, It's easy if you think of it as a training issue. Instead of sharing calendars, tell users they can check availability by going into calendar as if scheduling a meeting. Here, when you add invitees, you can see if they are free, but not what they are doing. Will this do the trick?

THanks compinfo,
One other thing: I forgot that OL 2003 uses "group schedules", with the Schedules button in Calendar. It is essentially the same functionality as I discussed above, but eliminates one step.
Cheers
