I have set up the Free/Busy Feature in Outlook 2003 to publish my calendar to a shared network folder (Windows 2003 Network).  Two other users on our network have also set the option in Outlook to publish to the same folder.  I can navigate to the folder and see that the calendar files are being generated to the correct folder, but when I set a new appointment and select scheduling, it only shows hash marks for the recipient.  It does show my calendar information but no information on the person I am trying to schedule.  We are NOT using Exchange server.  We are just publishing to a shared folder on our network.
