Customise ADUC User Properties Tabs and Fields

In the past when I have been using ADUC or user search in Outlook, I have come across customised User Properties forms. I was wondering if there are any useful tutorials or white papers which explain how this is done in detail. I am happy with how to enable and add additional fields in the Schema, but how to then get these to display on the User Properties form is a mystery. I am trying to add fields such as Birth Date or Vehicle Registration Number, but not just adding these on the Exchange Custom Attributes section. I'd rather avoid using VBS (ie adding additional options on the drop down box) but add these directly on the form.

Any help and advice would be grately appreciated.

If you want to add a new property sheet to AD Users and Computers you'll need to start with some C++, if you fancy it, the documentation is here:

http://msdn.microsoft.com/en-us/library/aa814672(VS.85).aspx

On the Windows 2008 side AD Users and Computers is enhanced to allow access to pretty much every attribute under Attribute Editor if you have View / Advanced enabled. Perhaps not entirely user friendly, but easier than coding. I think you can only install that version of AD U&C on 2008 and Vista unfortunately.
