I would like to know how to use public folders to share contacts

I am using an Exchange 2003 Server, and have Outlook XP clients.  I am trying to have a list of contacts built, that should not be in the GAL.  I understand you can use Public Folders to share contacts.  I gave 2 users access to Public Folders, and one created a public folder, added the appropriate contacts, and allowed the other user access to the folder. The creator of the folder can see and access the contacts without a problem.  The 2nd user can see the folder, and the contacts, however when they select the "To" button in outlook, they cannot access the public folder for contacts.  Can anyone help me with this?
