You can do this through Outlook and Exchange. Exchange Server 2003 allows users to book  meetings and appointments with one another and automatically mark their  calendars for every meeting request they choose to accept. Therefore you can create calendars for "non-people" objects  like meeting rooms, which have a published free/busy schedule, just like people.  Users can "book" a particular resource whenever the resource is "free" as per  its calendar.
