There is a tool on www.codeplex.com/.../ProjectReleases.aspx called "Uniuq Column policy Feature", download it (*.wsp file) then install it on your server using the following command:

C:\Program Files\Common Files\Microsoft Shared\web server extensions\12\BIN>stsadm -o addsolution -filename "C:\Documents and Settings\Administrator\Desktop\UniqueColumnPolicy.wsp"

then go to Central Administration>Operations> Solution management, you will find a solution called uniquecolumnpolicy.wsp, go and deploy it.

Then go to your document library or list> Settings> docuemnt library settings>Information management policy settings > Select Define a Policy, you will find "Unique Column Policy" then check the "Unique Column Policy" box next to it, then you will have the list of columns in your document library, select the column you want to apply a unique constrains on.
