How about more details about that "blabla"? :-/

In principle there is a big difference between samba.rpm that you get from
samba.org and samba that comes with RedHat. RedHat splits the samba package
in several parts. Mount the RH CDROMs and see how many sambas you can find.
Most likely Redhat installed only a part of the samba suite like
samba-client or smth; the response in the "blabla" part. OTOH samba from
samba.org is a big gulp it gets you everything. You have to choose which
path you'll go. Oh, and if you're in search of one installed package do a
"rpm -qa | grep package"; rpm -q samba will just ask about samba but if all
you have is samba-client...
