What's the easiest way to create a shared calendar in SBS 2008?

I am trying to find out the easiest way to create a shared calendar for an office of 6 people now running on SBS 2008 (Exchange 2007), mostly using Outlook 2007.  None of these people will use their own calendars, only the shared calendar.  In searching the internet this link comes up a lot for instructions:, but this seems to only be for SBS 2003, not SBS 2008.  For example those instructions say to go to the Server Management Console: Advanced Management.  All I can find in SBS 2008 are Server Manager and Exchange Management Console - neither of which have an 'Advanced Management' feature that I can find.

Thanks so much!

That's all there is to it?  Did it simply become 100x easier from SBS 2003 to SBS 2008?  I would like this calendar to be a public folder calendar for everyone to share, unless there is some reason to want to create a user-calendar and then share it...Thanks!

See pic - you can then invite people to share it with you
Are your AD admin tools letting you down?

Managing Active Directory can get complicated.  Often, the native tools for managing AD are just not up to the task.  The largest Active Directory installations in the world have relied on one tool to manage their day-to-day administration tasks: Hyena. Start your trial today.

I don't want one of my users to create a calendar (such as Brain Pierce here in the pic above) - I want to have a calendar created in the PUBLIC FOLDERS area and then have it available/shared with all the users in my SBS 2008 domain.  Thanks

Its essentially the same process - just create the calendar in poubluc folders and share it
