[Samba] Does the SWAT tool come with the Red Hat 8.0 distribution?

I was going to install SWAT, but am now diverting my attention to
iupgrading my version of SAMBA due to the fact that SWAT won't install
if you are running version 2.2.5 or less of SAMBA (dependencies).  I
thought Red Hat 8 came with version 2.2.5 SAMBA? My first question is,"
how would I check the version of SAMBA already installed?"
Obviously, no matter what version I have, SWAT wantd me to get the newer
one before it will let me install SWAT.
I got the samba-2.2.7a.tar.gz file from samba.org's mirror server and
unzipped it. 
I am wondering what step is next?
I believe that i now need to run the command "sh makerpms.sh"
(documentation says that this is for Red hat 5.5 which worried me a
little).  HOwever, when i ran it, i got messages galore saying that
certain directories did not exist.
Before I do this, should I put the files in any place in particular?
Right now I am running the command
I read elsewhere in the file Samba-HOWTO-Collection.pdf in the docs FTP
folder on the samba.org website mirror that I need to run "./configure"
and the other commands to get it installed.
Could anyone throw me some hints?
Thank you!!!
