If you really want to you can - its not easy and it will make AD quite large - it best done with 3rd party utilities

This attribute is called Photo and is only available in the windows 2003 AD schema

The attribute in Windows 2000 AD Schema was ThumbnailPhoto.  Both have the same data type.

It's not visible in the MS based interfaces although you could access and modify using scripting (CSVDE/LDIFDE).

The photo needs to be stored as type "octet string" in Active Directory so if you want to use the above scripting tools, you first need to be able to convert your photo into an octet string.
