Creating 2008 SBS Public Calendars

I have a SBS 2008 client I need to setup several public calendars and one ot two public contact lists. I have seen several ways on how to do this, but haven't found any step by step instructions. Several users have these calendars in their outlook setups and either have to move them or create blank calendars and add to them that way. I think I can export and inport them into the public calendars once setup ?

I need to do this over the weekend, so any assistance is appreciated. Thanks

Temporarily give the Public Folder Administrator role to the user who has a calendar or contact folder that you make into a public folder. This gives them the right to create top-level public folders.

The command:
Add-ExchangeAdministrator -Identity 'domain.contoso.com/Users/Paula' -Role:'PublicFolderAdmin'
Run this in Exchange Management Shell.

In Outlook, drag the calendar or contact folder into Public Folders.
Right-click the new Public Folder, go to Properties, Permissions tab, and set the permissions as appropriate for other users to access it.

If appropriate, remove the Public Folder Administrator role.

The command:
Remove-ExchangeAdministrator -Identity Paula -Role PublicFolderAdmin
Run this in Exchange Management Shell.

The solution also was to log in as the person who created the calendars, and give the Administrator all rights to the calendar, then assign permissions as required.

Thanks for the points.

Was the bit about adding the Administrator not do-able in this step?

"In Outlook, drag the calendar or contact folder into Public Folders.
Right-click the new Public Folder, go to Properties, Permissions tab, and set the permissions as appropriate for other users to access it."

Or, should I have mentioned adding the Administrator account explicitly as part of that, so you could manage it from the admin account later?
