>My first question is, how can i see, with which options the package was

Grab the SRPM for your Distro. Install the package and take a look in
/usr/src/redhat/SPECS/samba3.spec. There you can see the default
building options.
Or have a look at this dokument ( last page )

>We need ADS Integration, ACL and CUPS support.

with installed SRPM, go to /usr/src/redhat/SOURCES and untar
the samba package,
with ./samba-3.0.0/source/configure --help you will get all options
for compiling the samba package.

modify the samba3.spec with your options and rebuild the samba
package as you can see here

sorry, but for ads integration have a look in the doku
>What would be a good idea to back up, before an update?

imho, never play with your production environment without a
working and tested backup

>Thanks for any hint.
