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.
