I have someone using a iCal on her Mac.  She wants a remote user to be able to edit her calendar.  She was able to share the calendar, but the remote user cannot add or edit anything.  Is there any way to do this?

iCal is not designed to allow Shared Calendars to be edited by default.
To share a calendar and allow external users to edit it you will need one of the following:
1. ICal server running on a mac on the network with OSX Server.
2. Google Calendars- both users need to subscribe to the same calendar.
3. A 3rd party sync tool to keep 2 calendars in line with each other. On of the best is BusySync http://www.busymac.com/busysync/index.html

Also have a look at the BusyCal product by the same company BusyMac as it works like an iCal Server

I had looked at BusySync, and should have mentioned that I don't have a Mac.  This is Mac to PC.  

For the Google Calendar option is there a way to have that be the back end of iCal?  Sorry, I'm totally out of my element with this.  I had talked to the user about just using a Google Calendar, but she's already started using iCal, and doesn't want to change it.

She can use BusyCal to SYNC her iCal to a GoogleCalendar .. then the PC user can edit the Google Calendar and BusySync on her Mac will copy the changes back to her Mac and update her iCal and keep her up to date.
