Ahh, newbians!  Ok, first, I suggest reading some of the new documentation
available from the website.  Second, you need to type:
make install
Both from the same directory as ./configure
also, type ./configure --help  and see what options are available, as you may
need them, such as PAM support.  To enable PAM, you would do the following:
./configure --with-pam
make install
This should get you started, and if these commands finish without errors, that
samba should be installed in the usr/local/samba directory.

Good luck and feel free to ask any questions you may have,

Okay, now I am really revealling how much of a newbie I am.  With help from
this list I was been able to remove my current rpm of samba207.  I was also able
to download the latest 2.2 version using CVS.

I even found some old documentation in a samba book that told me to go the
source directory and type ./configure

But now I am stumped!  As a newbie -- what do I do after that. Be specific or
point me in the right direction.   I know it has something to do with make or
make install or something.  If their is a how to for this I would love to read

Your help is greatly appreciated.  As I am setting up a server for a poor inner
city school that was donated a bunch of win2000 machines, but no server.
