Thunderbird deployment and Calendar sharing

Currently our company uses, IMAP mail with Rackspace.  We host our Linux servers with them.  It works fantastic.  Our desktop users use, Squirral Mail to obtain thier email.  A web client.

Someone from our company has suggested Thunderbird as a email client.  I agreed since we will not need a server in house.  and it will just be installed locally.  Now the users are pushing for shared Calendars.  

Please let me if anyone can give me any suggestions on how I can do the following:

1. Share calendar with my setup above.  Utilizing Thunderbird software. Do I need to store that calendar in a central location, possiblly a WebDav?? setup.  

2. Can anyone suggest how I can go about this.

Any help will be appreciated.  

thank you

Lightning is the Calendar extension for Thunderbird. http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/lightning/index.html
BUT this is from their page.
Some of our future goals are (none of this is implemented right now):

    * Better Thunderbird integration
          o email<->task linkage
          o Integration with the Thunderbird address book
          o iMIP support (meeting invitations)
    * Improved CalDAV support
    * Cached calendar support for offline calendar use
    * Device synchronization

They are only at version 0.1 so ...
But from their http://www.mozilla.org/projects/calendar/faq.html
