How can I setup LDAP on Windows 2003?

In my office my colleagues are checking their e-mails with Outlook 2003, using POP3. However they want to have a shared contacts folder that everyone can open and view. I found that with POP3, LDAP is the only way (I'll be happy to be wrong on this one Happy) to access one database from several Outlooks.
But I can't seem to find any help about how to setup the LDAP server (for the Address book/contact list) on Windows 2003 server. There is a lot of info about how to do it on a Linux one and in the end I can do it like this, but I'd prefer to use something that is more familiar to me and have it run on a Windows server.

Do you have any tips, suggestions or recommendations, or I should just do it with Linux?

Why not Linux?

Given it's LDAP the choice of the server is at the IT staffer's discretion or the boss's direction. But as to your question I don't have much to add to the following articles and discussions:

My only added comment is that users of LDAP would have to be in the AD or in short words, logging into the domanin.

That search didn't get any results I haven't viewed so far. There is a lot of help of how to connect to LDAP, but not to create one, so I guess I'll do in with Linux. As I said before I wanted to do it with Windows 2003, because I could make it on the machine I use for AD. Now I will have yet another Virtual Machine for this Happy. All users here use the AD so that won't be a problem. Thank you Happy.

Ahh that's a different question.
