Real-time auto-refreshed views via Sharepoint

Using Sharepoint 2007 (corporate installation; I'm an end-user with teamsite admin rights but if I knew what needed to be done I may be able to request a backend solution).  

Is the following possible (last bullet is really the question)?  Willing to do this in a posted file or a list:

•      A file of any kind (e.g. ppt, .doc, .mpp) is posted in a sharepoint library OR a custom list is in use
•      All Sharepoint users in the company have read access to it
•      Project team members have contribute access.
•      Project team members and all company Sharepoint users have it open.
•      A project team member updates the file e.g. with a task complete during a system go-live and when they do, all the company Sharepoint users see it update – without having to manually refresh their view.
If that's not possible, any other suggestions for achieving the same?

Thanks!

You cant really do "realtime" but you can (atleast for the webparts) do an auto-refresh using the following meta tag
 <meta http-equi="refersh" content ="5"/

Open in new window

JDCUSAF: Thank you.  Can you explain how that works?

If you are familiar with webdesign at all, what the meta tag above does is cause the webpage to refresh every 5 seconds.

Just place it in your webparts that you want to refresh.

This is what worked for me in the end. I don't know coding so maybe the change I had to make to the last character would have been intuitive to someone who does.  There was also a typo in the proposed solution so copy this one instead.

<meta http-equiv="refresh"content="5">
