Advertising user information in intranet directory

Is there a method in which I can advertise user information from Active Directory on our intranet to enable other users to look up information such as phone numbers, office numbers, etc.?
The search for people can be done on Windows 2000 and Windows XP naturally. If you click search, then you select People. You can then search the entire directory for the information. If you would like to build this into your intranet web site, you can utilize ADSI (Active Directory Service Interface). You can use Java or VBScript to leverage ADSI. For some help developing the script you can go to http://www.microsoft.com/technet/community/scriptcenter/default.mspx. This is Microsoft's scripting center. There is also another source for sample scripts: http://cwashington.netreach.net/main/default.asp?topic=news.

Any administrator that needs to do any type of work should be familiar with WMI, WSH, ADSI, and VBScript. The Microsoft scripting center is a good start. You should can also download the SDK for WMI and ASDI
