> Well, you should check where your old sambadir is before
> installing/upgrading a never version. Many distributions does not
> follow the default install paths to samba.

> The default installdir (if you do not configure otherwise) is:

> /usr/local/samba
> /usr/local/samba/bin
> /usr/local/samba/lib/
> /usr/local/samba/var
> /usr/local/samba/private

> You could make symlinks to smbd and nmbd instead of trying to figure
> out how your current setup is.
