You will probably have better luck asking on the SuSE support mailing list. =20

SuSE Linux Support List - English <suse-linux-e at suse.com>

Anyway, if you have the SuSE 8.0 Professional CDs, you should be able to =
install Samba from YAST2.  (YAST2 is on the KDM toolbar and is the standard =
SuSE tool for installing any of the packages on the CD.)

If you have the personal edition, you have to download the latest samba rpms =
from ftp://ftp.suse.com/pup/people/lmuelle
