Resource Scheduling w/Exchange 2003

Our company is having issues with scheduling resources on Exchange Server 2003.  We want to have the resources available for everyone to view but do not want everyone to schedule the rooms directly in those calendars.  If we take away the permission to schedule directly when the user attempts to add the resource in the invite attendees as a resource they get the message they are not permitted to schedule this resource.  How do we set the resource up so that people can view and invite the resource but not schedule the resource directly on its calendar?

We have a mix of Outlook 2003, 2007, and 2010

>> view and invite the resource but not schedule the resource

We can allow the end-users to view the meeting-room\resources

>> Then if needed they can ask the receptionist (or) manager to book the meeting on need basis.

Reason: invite the resource will also schedule and book\decline the resource for the meeting.

>>> the feature which you are asking is "we need a manual intervention in concluding accepted\declined meeetings" is available in E2k7 and later
