I use the method of creating a complete new install directory.  If you
are going to install 2.2.8, then use the directory samba.2.2.8 as the 
base of the install.  This way you can install the new version while the
old version is still running.  When you are ready you can then stop the
old version and start the new one.  If things go really bad, you can 
just start the old version back up and work on fixing the new one with
minimal impact on the users.
