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!
