Hi, I've been trying to download your 'binaries' for AIX Samba and I find
that the 'binary' package is a single 'exe' file which - of course - doesn't
work on AIX.  There's no instructions as to what to do with it so I tried
looking into it with Winzip and I see theres a file with a 'bff' extension.
I'm not familiar with this file format.  I'd love to try Samba but due to
these problems I can't.  Have you any advice or a 'better' website than which actually tells me what do do with the downloaded file?
I also tried to do it with 'source-code' downloads; the one from Iceland
didn't want to untar and when I got one of the others I found that I needed
ANOTHER piece of software called a gcc to compile it!  Surely it would be a
good idea to package this with your files so that installation can actually
take place?

Best wishes
