Anybody know a step by step guide how to set up an LDAP server, and use it for having a 'public address book' on a MS Server 2008 platform, NOT Linux?

I believe that would just be "Setting up Active Directory", which is the Windows directory service for domains.  In Server 2008, you do this by adding a role to the server.  See here:

I agree, every DC in Active Directory is by default a LDAP server.

As for the address book, there are many and many types.
I suppose, they could be classified within two types:
-  a WEB based address book available from a browser
-  a client based as done within Outlook

Unless you were after AD Lightweight Directory Services? That will give you a much simpler LDAP directory service.
