Well, then you are behind on updates, current version in security
updates is something like 2.2.7a-9.2mdk or so.

Go to http://plf.zarb.org/~nanardon to find an update source. Run
MandrakeUpdate or 'urpmi --auto-select' to actually install the updates.

Either way, use:
# urpmi samba-swat
to install it.

BTW, I really dislike SWAT, if you can run GUI stuff on your server, try
 this first:
(it's in contrib in 9.1)

See the binary_packages/Mandrake on the samba FTP mirrors, read the
README.txt for better instructions. If you are using rpm manually to
install rpm's, you're wasting your time.
