Publish Resrouce Room Status Exchange 2007

We have had users ask about the room list box in a new meeting invite.  They have been informed since we have Exchange 2007 they need to invite the possible conference (resource) rooms and look at the free/busy time lines.  When we go to Exchange 2010 and have Outlook 2010 they will be able to see rooms in the room box.

My goal is to have a way to give them a view, or published internal web page to see the room availability.  
 I do not plan putting anything in like Event Board or Four Winds Interactive.  I don't need displays by each room just a quick view from a users desk to help them quickly compare rooms.  I was experimenting with a way to add resource rooms to a group in contacts and then just add one group to view time lines.

Thanks in advance.

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

As you are on Exchange 2007, you can use web parts.
These are special URLs that show just part of a mailbox, designed for integration in to other things.

Just embed the content via an iFrame or similar in to the web page.

I could work with it to get the HTML correct, but it looks like it may be difficult to find the keywords/code needed to extract the free/busy times.

It isn't something I have worked with myself - the functionality is there though.
The other option would be to buy something to do it for you - I found two or three web parts for calendars available for sale.
