You can create a separate calendar folder by right-hand clicking the "Calendar" folder in the left-hand pane and select "New Calendar...".

Similarly, you can create a separate task folder by right-hand clicking the "Task" folder in the left-hand pane and select "New folder..."

In both cases, you name the folder and can change Folder contains:" to "Calendar Items" or "Task Items".

So if I create a calendar named "bob" and I create a task folder named "bob", I can tell Outlook to show only Bob's task list when viewing Bob's calendar?
I have been trying to do something like that, but regardless of which calendar I view, my tasks and Bob's tasks show up in the task list.
Is there something I am missing here?  Not quite sure if a stated my problem correctly.

No - there is only one task list, which consists of all non-completed tasks anywhere in the mailbox.

You can group by the folder that they are in, so you have group together all of the default tasks, and group together all of "Bob"'s tasks, but cannot tell it to only show you a selected group which is dependent on the folder you are in.
