[X-Newbies] Calendar syncing

I don't think of myself as a newbie, but this problem seems pretty 
simple, yet it has me stumped.

I have just started using iSync and can't figure out how its supposed 
to work with published calendars. I have a published calendar on my 
desktop that is the "master" that several people subscribe to 
(including me on my laptop), plus I have some unpublished calendars 
that I'd like to get onto my laptop with iSync. The strange thing is 
that when I run iSync, it copies the published calendar onto my laptop, 
and leaves it in the "published" state.

I don't think I really want to have the calendar published from two 
places - I'm not sure how that's even supposed to work  - a "last 
updater wins" scenario, I guess.  The most detrimental part is that 
with the calendar "published" on my laptop instead of subscribed, I can 
no longer see the updates put up from the master calendar on my 
desktop. And when I unpublish on the laptop, the calendar is deleted 
off .Mac until I refresh it again from the desktop.

This seems really dorky - is there some slick way that iSync is 
supposed to work with published calendars that I'm missing?
