Make Resource appointments default to busy.

We have all of our meeting rooms, projectors, laptops, and all other A/V equipment set up as rooms and resources in Exchange 2007.  We have a scheduling manager that accepts/denies all incoming requests.  The problem is that when someone schedules a room/resource and sets the "Show As" setting to free, the meeting doesn't show up correctly.  It WILL show up under "Day View", but NOT under Schedule View or the scheduling assistant so it could possibly be double booked.  

Is there any way to make the requests to Rooms/Resources automatically show up as busy?

    Within Outlook itself No.

    If someone manually sets the Show Time from BUSY to FREE
    There is no builtin function that will change this

    Why the B Grade then?

    Might not be the answer you want, as not all questions have solutions, yet this is still a correct answer.
    In such cases the Grade Should still be an A
