I have never done it but here is one that does just that... but there is some kind of price tag.

Also, maybe you could just get a Gmail account and share the calendar. That's the CHEAP route.

There are also some open source calendars - I recently looked at a couple, but I was needing a resource calendar - not just a plain calendar. Google for: Sourceforge IIS calendar. if you want to try that route. Most run on top of PHP.

Arrg...
I left off one last thing. You could install Sharepoint Services (Free) and do a Calendar in it.
Needs SQL Express and IIS. Also Free.

Those proposed before, I believe are the best with good value for money.

Here is an updated list:

Thanks guys! :-)

Now:

1. Sharepoint is (unfortunately) out, the server is FS and PS - windows XP
2. ShareCalendar seems great (http://www.4team.biz/purchase_sharecalendar.asp) - some question below
3. OfficeCalendar is _way_ expensive at 500USD for 4 users.
4. And there is WorkgroupShare, which for 5 users cost 175$, which is acceptable.

Regarding ShareCalendar - does it work automatically under a workgroup? Meaning; someone makes a change in shared calendar, and in, say, 5 minutes all people can see that change, without doing any special action?
