[Samba] samba newbie having trouble configuring samba on RH7.3...

I'll try the samba rpm's. I have just one question before I begin, and I
apologize in advance if this sounds a little dumb. Once I download each
of the rpm's do I have to configure each of them or just one of them? I
could never get this question answered that's why I switched to using
tar files. If anyone here can answer this or point me to something
that'll help me understand this I'll be greatly appreciated.

My vote is with Sameer... read his prior letter and download the 4 rpms
and install them. It will TRULY make your life easier. Being that you're
using Samba at home, you're not going to gain anything over source vs.
RPM. If this was a production deployment, I'd probably say different.
But you'll have much easier control over the RPMS.
I had forgotten that you compiled from source. All yu need to do is dump
the /usr/local/samba dir (after stopping samba of course). Then install
the RPMS and start samba: "/etc/init.d/smb start"
