Although Samba 3 isn't in the Debian stable tree, the forthcoming 
release of Debian 3.1 includes Samba 3.0.2a. Although this release has 
been a long time in development, there isn't a confirmed release date 
yet as the last few bugs are still being squished.

However, if you can't wait for that release, www.backports.org provides 
a Samba 3.0.2a package for Debian stable which I have tested and found 
to be OK at work. The website provides instructions on how to get 
packages via apt. The only thing that the backports.org packages were 
missing that I needed was "quota reporting" support, but I was able to 
recompile the packages quite easily to enable this option.
