There are samba 2.0.7 RPMS in the updates section for RedHat 6.2 that
will mesh with the current setup you ahve.


or another mirror.

Download the 3 samba files and do an rpm -Uvh *.rpm

If you really insist on using the one you've already downloaded, you
probably need to rpm -e the 3 samba files that are already installed
(all on one line) and then rpm -Uvh the new one.

In either case, make a copy of your current /etc/smb.conf beforehand
just to be safe.
