Can you customize fields returned by windows XP search for people in Active Directory?

Experts:

I've been tasked with identifying different ways to allow end users the ability to update their contact information listed in the Global Address List (Active Directory).  I know you can search and modify some fields by using the Windows Search (for people), but there are some fields (such as mobile phone) that aren't viewable here.

Is there a way to modify what the Windows Search returns as far as the fields?

ADSI edit is the only way I know to add custom fields to the search

How would that add the fields that Windows XP returns?
You can select which fields to search on using the advanced option within the search dialogue box.
