I have set this up before on an Linux apache server with webdav enabled 
and ran into the following problems..

Data corruption/data loss when access with multiple clients at the same 
time.  The calendars get corrupted.  (but this may be related to using 
beta mozilla calendar/sunbird clients on windows and Linux in addition 
to iCal on Mac.)

iCal didn't support SSL,  (i think think that has been remedied in a 
recent upgrade, but I'm not sure) 

Phpicalendar is good or showing a web view, but watch it for frequent 
security updates..

Don't let this discourage you, it worked, I just wasn't patient enough 
to work all the bugs out.  It may work great if you are only using iCal, 
and don't need SSL.  If you are looking for a shared calendar system, 
test carefully or take frequent backups. 

Hope this helps,
