PHP, Active Directory and LDAP

Hello

I have a php Intranet, and what I would like to do is hit the Active Directory and bring back the Username, FirstName and Lastname from Active Directory and set them to variables, so I can either display them or insert them into a database.

A few things to consider, php is installed on the server, but I don't have access to the server to change any settings.  This is just a side project and we are blowing up the existing intranet and going with a Content Management System, so the easier the better.

thanks,

if PHP was built --with-ldap, you should be able to use the built in ldap functions
