sharing Outlook calendars required an Exchange server.  http://www.slipstick.com/outlook/share.htm
that said, there are 3rd party solutions such as : http://www.officecalendar.com/

if you are running Exchange, then poweruser32's answer may be relevant to you.

Another one that you might want to look at is Look. I have that on a couple of sites and it works well.

Looks good. I thought there were ways to do this without spending money - were there not?

IT, Stop Being Called Into Every Meeting

Highfive is so simple that setting up every meeting room takes just minutes and every employee will be able to start or join a call from any room with ease. Never be called into a meeting just to get it started again. This is how video conferencing should work!

Would having all user switch to 2007 Office package resolve these issues?

Perhaps if you were a little more specific about what you are trying to achieve we may be able to make further suggestions.

if you have windows server 2003 you could set up Sharepoint (free) and share from there:
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/help/HA011471611033.aspx

if you use Office 2007, it still requires Exchange...
although 2007 does offer something called Online Calendars that you can subscribe to as part of Office Online... it is not the same kind of sharing that you get with Exchange.
Office 2007 also would allow you to send a snapshot of your calendar as an email..but again, that's not the same type of sharing that you get with Exchange
http://office.microsoft.com/en-us/outlook/HA101743591033.aspx

but.. instead of the expense of Office 2007 + subscription to Office Online... you would be better off with using Google calendars and their free shared service.

Google also offers capabilities similar to excel and word.
