Yes, that's so you can install samba-2.2.x in parallel with samba3
(there are some situations where this is really necessary), and so that
someone running 'urpmi --auto-select' on the samba urpmi medium doesn't
have a nasty surprise ...

If you want samba3 packaged to replace samba-2.2.x, either rebuild the SRPM:

$ rpm --rebuild samba-3.0.0-2mdk.src.rpm --with system

or grab packages here:

Try testparm3

With net3.

No, testparm is for samba-2.2.x, testparm3 is for samba-3.0.0. Every
single binary you are going to use (if you are only using samba-3.0.0)
will have a 3 suffix.

> Perhaps there are two versions of samba here?

$ rpm -q samba-server
$ rpm -q samba3-server

$ rpm -ql samba-common
$ rpm -ql samba3-common

You could, but it would be much easier to:
1)use them as is (net3, testparm3, service smb3 start etc ...)
2)rebuild the SRPM
3)Use the packages I have made available
4)Convince me that for samba-3.0.1 the packages on the samba FTP mirrors
should be build with '--with system', possibly wiping out some user's
5)Wait for Mandrake 10.0 (we have just switched samba to 3.0.1 in
Mandrake cooker, samba-2.2.x is now called samba2).

BTW, you may also want to consider using Mandrake 9.2 instead, since 9.2
has Kerberos MIT 1.3.x, which will make life a bit easier for
Winbind/AD. Also, 9.2 uses alternatives for samba-client/samba3-client
which makes some other things more convenient.
