We are running SharePoint Foundations. We would like a page that creates a company directory based on the user information in our Active Directory (Name, Phone, Title, Location, etc.) so when the Active Directory info changes so does what shows in SharePoint. Doing some research I see that it's possible do something like this using the People Search Core Content Web Part, however this doesn't seem to be available with SharePoint Foundations, only Standard and above.

Any ideas how to do this with SharePoint Foundations?

You have to buy a third party tool or write your own to sync AD to your Site Collection User Information List or custom SP List.

Bamboo has a tool, but there are plenty others. My preference would be a script using the Object Model.
