Hiding subject and note fields of calendar entries

We use Outlook 2000 in an Exchanged 5.5 NT network.  We have no problem with delegating calendar access, but it now shows all fields, even the ideally private subject and note fields. Our users want to share their calendar time slots with one another (so that others can see when they are available) without having to share the subject or note fields with those others.  Is this doable?  
thanks, Paul

Paul, unfortunately, I know of no way to hid these fields easily, but there are 2 workarounds:
1. Make sure users mark as Private any events they do not want to share
2. Don't set read permissions, but instead only allow users to view availability through the calendars, attendees feature. Here, whether or not one has permission. all can view availability

Will this solve the issue?
Best of luck
