hmm...i think korganizer should support most of those features...and i
*belive* you can do shared calanders via webdav.  their is also an
exchange 2000 plugin, although I can not report it that works or not. 
i'm actually pretty happy with korganizer, as it's been a decent
replacement for iCal and integrates with KDE quite well.
