Thanks!

Meanwhile, I just found out a great application, KOrganizer. that does 
it. It also works with the calendar file from Firefox, so I didn't even 
have to import anything and, if I use either program to make changes to 
the calendar file, the other also reflects the changes. On top of that, 
KOrganizer integrates greatly eith KDE, wich is good for me.

Thanks for all the replies!
