I just installed Winodws XP Pro and connected it to the companies domain. Where can I download Active Directory from?

Active Directory is not something you download - you join a domain with an account that has privileges to do so within the domain. Just change your machine location in Control Panel > System from Workgroup to Domain and enter the domain name. It should then prompt you for credentials.

Active Directory is software that comes with the Windows Server systems (2k, 2003,2008)

As said, a user'c client system joins the domain created on the Win/Server.
Without that, you can use a Linux system with LDAP, but that will not provide the
PC Management of AD.
