I bet you did an upgrade from an older RPM.  The un-install script
from the old version deleted the contence of the /etc/codepage
directory.  A quick fix - backup your /etc/smb.conf, /etc/smbpasswd,
and /etc/smbusers files just in case.  Then do an rpm -e samba,
and then do a fresh install.  Or do an install using the --force
