Populate ComboBox with LDap Users

Hi,
I want to populate the Combo Box with the users in the LDAP Directory without looping thru the SearchResult of directorySearcher Search Result. how can i Achieve the same. the reason is the code takes a longer time to loop thru. if there was any code which would let me populate the Datatable which is used as datasource for my Combo Box with all the data in the search result would be helpful. i want only 3 properties of the LDAP viz Mail, SAM Account Name and Name.
Thanks in Advance

DomainName="ABC.COM";
DirectoryEntry ADSEntry = new DirectoryEntry("LDAP://" + DomainName);
            DirectorySearcher mySearcher = new DirectorySearcher(ADSEntry);
mySearcher.Filter = "(&(objectCategory=user)(name=*))";
mySearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("Name");
                mySearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("SAMAccountName");
                mySearcher.PropertiesToLoad.Add("mail");
mySearcher.Sort = new SortOption("name", SortDirection.Ascending);
SearchResultCollection src = mySearcher.FindAll();
 
 
// What should i do next......

If you want to achieve this, you can take a look at LINQ to AD

If you are not planning to use LINQ, I don't think that there is another option than looping the results
