I have been looking at these things for quite some time now.

I would highly recommend E-groupware.  I know, I know, but you can choose what 
tools you want to activate.  You can just activate the contact, calendars and 
scheduling.  I use it for my business.

The other is a bit thinner and not so mature.  dotProject.  I took a look at 
this one and started using it..... but it just didn't have everything that I 
wanted.... (importing contact databases, etc.)

Yeah, I've tried all the bloated groupware things over the years and 
E-groupware wins hands down.
