You could use the calendar in Thunderbird then if you use it as your mail reader it's win-win. Can't vouch for how good it is though but from what I can see it's "similar" to outlook in that you can invite meeting attendees etc.

Hello,

I'm using the Google-calendar, there is an Addon for Thunderbird for this calendar and it can be synchronized with many Smartphones (Android, WebOS). It is required that one has a mail-account from Google. The calendar can be shared with other people.

The name of the addon is "Google Calendar Tab" it should work with any recent version of Thunderbird 3 and OpenSuse 11.3 isn't that old, it should support also newer versions of Thunderbird.

I had this Addon running with a more recent version of Thunderbird 3, you should try to upgrade Thunderbird.

Well, you can share your calendar with other people who have also a googlemail-account. This is not locally, but anyone can use the calender over the internet. You can use it within any browser.

I'd suggest to create a googlemail-account for everyone in the workgroup and one general account where meetings can be scheduled. Then you share the general calendar with everyone.

We have a similar solution with M$-Exchange, but it is very similar.

btw, if googlemail doesn't meet your requirements, you can as well use the calendar of yahoo-mail, but they connect with http instead of https, so I found googlemail to be more secure.
