do a "make install" to put the compiled binaries in to the directory 
configured with ./configure --...... (Default: everything in 
/usr/local/samba). It can be the same as the one for 2.0.7, back it 
up bevore you install or relay on the ".old / make revert" - feature 
of the samba Makefile. Restart the daemons, better: stop, install,
