I would do this, but I don't know how ...

Now this is what I think is the problem ...

Now, I downloaded the rpm from Samba.org for RedHat 7.2 and
installed it and I had the same problem. I then recompiled
all the src rpms that I had for Samba since 2.2.1a. All the
rpms from Samba.org had the same problem, I then
re-installed the one that came with RedHat 7.2 and it all
worked. So I used the spec file form the src rpm ( with a
little work ) and made a basic Samba 2.2.3 with worked.
So, where does this leave us. I can get my system working, I
will work on the spec file until I am happy that I will not
have any problem, but I think that some will have to take a
look at the spec file that ships with the tar and update it
to use the right path ... I am not a programmer, and don't
think that I will be able find the right solution, but I
will help where I can ...
Thanks again guys ...
Great product ...
