Heh. I inherited a handfull of samba servers. When I got them, their
version numbers were: 1.9.18p4, 1.9.17alpha4, 2.0.0, 2.0.4b, and
1.9.18p1. I didn't have any qualms about installing 2.2.0-alpha2 on
them, and I'm going to try alpha3 today. :)
I use a --prefix to make each samba install to a unique place, so I can
roll-back or roll-forward the servers at will by changing which samba
gets started from init. Being able to that rapidly makes me a lot more
