Can Microsoft Outlook be used with Domino without installing Notes client?

This administrator wants to know if Microsoft Outlook can be used with Domino if the Lotus Notes client is not installed.

We need to share the Domino directory in Microsoft Outlook 2003. Is it possible to use Outlook with a Domino server without installing the Lotus Notes client? We have tried Microsoft's plug-in (Outlook Connector for Domino) but that needs a Lotus Notes client install. We also tried IBM's plug-in (Domino Access for Microsoft Outlook) but it was unable to display the Domino directory with Outlook XP 97 and 2003. Are there any other plug-ins that you are aware of, or any other suggestions to work around this?
All you need to do is load LDAP on the Domino server and point your Outlook clients at it. Works great for any client.
