[Samba] Problems installing Samba

Have RH7.1 and am trying to install Samba 2.2.2. After much trouble with
conflicting files, I finally got it to install. However, when I try to run
it, I receive the following error message:

auth: command not found
auth: command not found
account: command not found
session: command not found
password: command not found

I found the samba script in /etc/pam.d, not in /etc/samba where I'd expect
it.  Also, it sure seems strange that everything in the pam.d directory is:
 -rw-r--r-- (what's up with that?).

Obviously, I chmod'ed samba and that's when I had the problems I listed

RH6.2 was so easy; just rpm -i <samba>, configure smb.conf, then samba
start. Why does RH7.1 have to be so difficult?

I would sure appreciate any words of wisdom...


p.s. please pardon my duplicate posting of this message in another list. I'm
not familiar with how lists work nor what etiquette to employ.
