[CalendarServer-users] small company setup

I've installed DCS on Tiger Server and have it working with the  
default settings. I can log in via Sunbird and create a calendar with  
the admin account, but I'm ashamed to say that I'm having a hard time  
wrapping my head around the structure and the setup needed for my  
small company of 20 Panther and Tiger users.

For the last nine years we've been using Now up to Date, which has  
worked relatively well for the types of scheduling we do (we're a  
video post production facility). The setup is pretty basic: about 40  
categories that represent edit bays, camera packages, conference  
rooms, etc. as well as about a dozen people's schedules. We don't use  
meeting scheduling and it's not tied into email or contacts. Everyone  
can make changes to anyone else's events (something I'd like to  
change) and can see all categories.

I'm eager to play with DCS and edit the default XML and plist files,  
but I'm stumbling on the setup of locations, resources and group  
memberships. I've looked through the email archives and followed the  
links on the site, which are all quite helpful, but just not quite  
simple enough for a calendar newbie like myself.

Is there any kind of write up or How-to for someone in my situation?
