Running samba 2.2.7a-8.9.0 on RedHat 9.0 system. It is our fileserver. 
Going to upgrade to samba 3 and I wanted to make sure nothing is going to 
break. Our smb.conf for samba 2.2.7a is very straightforward. No PDC or 
anything like that. domain master = no. password server is our NT4 domain 
controller. So I'm thinking it should be an easy take. I've checked the 
smb.conf man pages for samba 3 and nothing in our smb.conf is depricated 
or going to cause a problem, so I think.

So here is the plan:
Save the smb.conf. rpm -e the samba 2 stuff. Then rpm -i the 
samba-3.0.2a-1 rh9.i386.rpm from samba.org. Put the smb.conf back in 
place, and then we are happy. Right? Maybe samba 3.0.2a needs some other 
rpms, which is no problem I can install them at that point.

Am I missing anything, or is this a simple thing?
