Thank you for that information. I have copied all 4 samba packages onto a
cd-rom twice. I will try the yum utility when I take it back and install it
again. Then I will be able to provide more information on what problems I am

Encountering. I appreciate your help help greatly.

I think if you want to be a server, you have to install samba-server:

yum install samba-server
