SharePoint Calendar Display

I am working with Sharepoint Server 2007 and need to setup a Users Exchange 2003 calendar to be displayed in a webpart or page.

Any Ideas?

So you create a Calendar in a SharePoint site logged in as the user, then go under Actions, select Connect to Outlook.  Outlook will then ask you if it is OK to link to the site, etc.  Once you have added the site to your Outlook, you can drag/drop events from your main calendar, or create new events directly in the SharePoint calendar.   Outlook will sync with the SharePoint Calendar and wallah, your events appear on the SharePoint site. Works vice versa too.  Events created on the site will appear in Outlook.

Further clarification - This would be for all users that log on Sharepoint to see - Example my calendar.. If someone would go to the IT page, the first thing they could see is my calendar, to check for availability in a visual way.

Oestonee's is correct on both of his posts.  To elaborate a little more:

To add an exchange 2003 OWA calendar:
1. Make sure users you want to see the calendar have at least "read" access to the Exchange Calendar
2. Place a new page viewer webpart on the page you want to embed the outlook calendar
3. Point the page viewer webpart to the OWA url for the calendar:
     I.E http://virtual_server_name/exchange/username/calendar 

Use a SharePoint Calendar:
Unless you absolutely need the calendar to be part of the mailbox (Like you personal calendar), the best method is to use a SharePoint calendar linked into outlook.  This will allow you to add entries both from within outlook, through e-mail (if you have configured email-enabled lists), and through the SharePoint site.  You can also leverage workflows and approval settings to control additional entries, have more consistent and manageable permissions, and add additional columns if desired.  

So if all your trying to do is expose you own calendar, simply use the OWA trick. If you need a more collaborative Calendar solution, use a SharePoint Calendar.
