The Samba team provides RPMs for RedHat.  I'd recommend getting those instead 
of going to source.  Yes, they're laid out differently - everything is in one 
RPM as opposed to RedHat's split of samba-client/common/server.  So I 
recommend backing up /etc/samba, and then removing all RedHat Samba RPMs, and 
then installing the 2.2.6 one provided by Samba themselves.  That's all there 
is to it!
