If you extract the tarball, do a ./configure, make and make install, then
samba will be installed in /usr/local/samba. The daemons (smbd, nmbd) reside
underneath /usr/local/samba/bin. If this is not wat you want, try to fiddle
with the --prefix options for the ./configure script. You can see all options
when you type ./configure --help. Maybe there's a possibility to tell Webmin
where to look for samba ... I don't use this, so I am not sure
