Do the following:
download and untar samba sources somewhere
./bin/update-packageinfo 2.2.6pre 20020730
Wait for rpms to appear in /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386
(Note that the samba-directory needs to be called the
same as the first argument to update-packageinfo)
rpm -Uvh samba-2.2.6pre-20020730.i386.rpm
(if trouble: remember that redhat divides their samba-rpm
so you may have to:
rpm -e samba-common samba-client samba-server

> It appears that the original files are in /etc/samba/ , at least the smb.conf, and the new

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

> What type of config command do I execute to make it work or how do I change the
