Windows Server 2003's Active Directory is also an LDAP server.
You could just promote the server to a domain controller and then use the AD functions of the server to do LDAP. This would cost no extra money.
What is it that you want to do...?

If you want something less involved than full-blown Active Directory 2003 comes with ADAM:

And 2008 comes with Lightweight Directory Services (ADAM with a few more features):

You can run these alongside Active Directory. Clearly you'll need a different Port for the service if the server is also an Active Directory Domain Controller (because it will be using LDAP's default port, 389).
