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

Last Modified: 2012-05-10

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?
