Fedora Core 5 Problem

There are only 4 samba packages for Fedora Core.  They are:


The samba package includes everything required to create a server.   
samba-common includes some configuration samples, some charset  
information, man pages for various utilities, and the smbclient  
libraries.  samba-client includes client utilities (smbclient,  
smbmount, etc.) for using an FC5 box as an smb client on the network.   
samba-swat includes the swat administrative package.

In order to provide a samba server, you only absolutely NEED the samba  
package.  However, it's probably worthwhile to install all 4 packages,  
mostly for getting started purposes.
