You really don't suppy enough information.  

To whit:

Are you installing binaries or source?
What OS are you using?
What architecture are you using?
If you are installing binaries via rpm on a linux i386 platform then you need 
to man rpm.
If you are installing binaries via package on FreeBSD you need to man pkg_add.  
as in pkg_add -p .....
If you are installing from source you need to do ./configure 

If there's additional needs for installing samba with winbind support I don't 
really know since I don't use winbind.  I only have about 8 users and I am 
lazy enough to install them on the server as unix users rather than learning 
about winbind.  I know I suck.  Oh well.

And I don't understand what you mean by linking the new version to the old.  

In short, there are a lot of possible things for you to do, but not enough 
information from you to point you in the right direction.
