I have not done an upgrade, but have installed Samba 2.0.7 under Solaris
2.6.  It was all pretty straightforward.  We followed UNIX_INSTALL.txt and
NTDOMAIN.txt in the docs directory to set up our machine purely as a file
server in an NT domain.  Until you type 'make install' nothing gets in
installed.  The last stage is pretty quick.  Clearly you should back up the
old version first in case you get problems and also to safeguard your
existing configuration file.

The only minor problems we have 2.0.7 I think may apply to all releases:
	share names limited to 12 characters
	In Windows Explorer double clicking on the folder share level does
not show the folder as open, but shows the contents.
	Also if you copy files to the folder at share level you have to do a
manual refresh.  
	Once you descend down the tree these problems do not occur.
