The doc/install-http.html file hopefully should tell you everything you 
need to know.  If not, let me know.

The server will automatically create a "Default" calendar and 
addressbook, for dumb clients like Lightning that can't create their 
own.  Otherwise, an admin can create additional collections just by 
creating a mailbox in the correct location.  We are toying with the idea 
of creating a webpage that allows the end-user to admin their 
collections (create, delete, rename, acl management) themselves for 
those not using smart clients like iCal.
