Hmm... I'll refrain from commenting about the rest, but yes, you missed a step.

Use the package management tool in turbolinux to remove samba prior to 
installing 2.2.5.

Ideally do a make uninstall in the samba 2.2.5 source directory, uninstall 
2.0.7 and then do a make install again.

The problem is you have two copies of samba installed, the first in the 
path is the turbolinux ver.

I am not a member of the samba team,
and anything that I say may not be as
accurate as a response from one of the
team.  I reply to save those more
qualified time, which can more usefully
be spent developing SAMBA further.
