I am a total newbie to programming, Visual Basic, Visual Studio, and LINQ.  I am trying to build a very simple web application to manage *contact* items at any given OU in Active Directory.  I would like to use LINQ to Active Directory to allow me to get the list of contacts, as well as create new contacts, and updated and delete existing contacts.  I have been doing a *lot* of reading for the past two weeks trying to get this to work, but I have not yet been able to accomplish what I need to do.  It would be great if someone would be so kind to explain how to use LINQ to AD in Visual Studio 2010 so that I can do what I have described above step-by-step.  Alternatively, if you think I should be trying something totally different, please be so kind and point me in the corrent direction. 

Thank you all very much for any help you might be able to provide.
