SharePoint 2010 Foundation AD User List

Hello,

I've been searching around for a way to create a staff directory on our SharePoint 2010 Foundation set up by Synchronizing that list with Active Directory and preferably pull the thumbnail photo from AD.

I've found a few web parts that look promising but they appear to require SharePoint 2010 Server for the synchronization settings that aren't a part of Foundation so any suggestions or ideas would be ideal!

"The solutions and answers provided on Experts Exchange have been extremely helpful to me over the last few years. I wear a lot of hats - Developer, Database Administrator, Help Desk, etc., so I know a lot of things but not a lot about one thing. Experts Exchange gives me answers from people who do know a lot about one thing, in a easy to use platform." -Todd S.

A prior answer on EE has good links, but I think wont work for Foundation;

Though this is interesting, a Foundation workaround using Powershell. Photos not included!
