Although I have setup T-bird within the company network to access the
Global Addressbook - I have not tried this over the net. If it fails
(and I'll try this over the weekend) installing a public LDAP server
may be needed. 

Search Google on Thunderbird and LDAP for the idea of how TB gets
configured. Setting up the LDAP server may be something else.

Like I mentioned, I have gotten this to run within the company network
structure (minus the calendar of course) with TB and the addressbook
using Active Dir. We're in the process of setting up a Fedora-DS server
for something a bit more.

As time goes on - perhaps I'll do up a short how-to since the ones you
find via Google are much to be desired.
