I am curious how to create/edit an Exchange Calendar shortcut for my Outlook 2003 users accessing other users shared calendars.  The links end with *.xnk.

Opening Outlook .xnk files or shortcuts is the same both in 2003 and 2007.

You use the following command line switch

/x xnkfilename - Opens the specified .xnk file.

To use the switch
Start>Run>Outlook.exe /x xnkfilenamehere

Any Particular reason you are doing it this way?
You realize users should be opening Shared Calendars by going to File>Open>Other Users Folder>Select Calendar and enter users name.

As long as they have permissions to do so are delegates of this users calendar they should be able to open it.

One of my clients, a Dr's office uses the Dr's calendar as the main office calendar for all appts, etc.  Prior to the upgrade to  Windows 2008 Server / Exchange 2007 SP1 the users would have Outlook XP .xnk links to the Dr's calendar.  Before I fully migrated all the XP clients to the new DC and Exchange, I wanted to confirm the process for these links.

Thank you for your help. You answered all of my questions.
