How can we allow users to update their AD property sheet?

We use Windows 2003 Standard Edition as our Active Directory server and all of our clients use Windows XP. Is there any way we can allow users to update their AD property sheet (i.e. home address, telephone numbers, department)?

By default, each AD user has the appropriate rights to update their own personal properties such as home address and telephone number. To provide an interface for this, you can create a Web application using the Directory Services interfaces in .NET, or purchase a third-party tool to allow for end-user self-service.
