The version of Samba included with the book is 2.0.3.
The latest relase is 2.0.7.  You should download
to /usr/local/src on your Linux host and run

	# gzip -dc samba-2.0.7.tar.gz | tar xvf -
	# cd samba-2.0.7/source
	# ./configure
	# make
	# make install

The samba binaries, man pages, etc... will be installed 
into /usr/local/samba/
