When I pulled samba to reinstall the latest versions I used
rpm -e samba
rpm -e samba-client
rpm -e samba-common

This was on a RH7.2 system. I had trouble getting 2.2.3a to un-install, but
since it wasn't running yet I simply re-built the server and had another go
at it....  One thing to note, the default firewall settings (if you chose to
use them) disallow ports in the 137-139 range. I've disabled the firewall
temporarily while I find out how to open those ports....

I installed Samba 2.2.3a on the above server and swat is installed (not
working yet, but installed)
