[Samba] Samba 2.2.5 update process

I'm a little confused.

It appears that the original files are in /etc/samba/ , at least the smb.conf, and the new 
ones are in usr/local/samba/lib/smb.conf and nothing pertaining to /usr/bin.

I would like to keep the original configuration of Red Hat 7.3 just for consistency
of Red Hat.

What type of config command do I execute to make it work or how do I change the 
startup script to use the update installation.

The default prefix is /usr/local/samba.  I'm guessing your old binaries are
still located in /usr/bin.  

You can either change your startup script for smb to point to the new
binaries or re-run your config and specify the correct prefix.
