[Samba] Installing/Removing RPM's

Try doing an 'rpm -qa | grep samba' to find out which Samba packages you
have installed.  These names are the ones you use when doing a 'rpm -e' so
you  might have to uninstall several rpms.
Read the man page for swat installation - either 'man swat' or follow this

Hello everyone.
This is partly a RedHat specific question.  When I try removing a rpm using
'rpm -e'
I get 'rpm not installed', and when I try install the same rpm using 'rpm
-i', I get 'rpm already installed'. How can this be? Please advise.
Another thing is that I can't find the swat service. I installed smb server
at installation, and the rest of the packages seem to be installed. I'm
trying to reinstall, but the above problem keeps holds me back. If I could
reinstall, is this the right thing to do, or do you have other suggestions?
Thanks for your time,
