[Samba] Problem with password program setting. Maybe my upgrade did
not go good?

I was running a server with Redhat 9.0 on it. I had upgraded samba by
compiling 3.03 on it several months ago. When I add password
syncronization I started getting the error:
ERROR: the 'passwd program' (/usr/bin/passwd %u) requires a '%u' parameter
Of course my parameter was right but there was a bug in it. At that
point, I decided to use the rpm for 3.08 for redhat 9.0. The error
still occurred. At that point, I had Fedora core and upgraded my system
without a hitch, or so it seemed. This took my samba and samba common
backdown to release 3.03. I downloaded samba, samba common and samba
client 3.08 rpms and ran an upgrade. Again it seemed as if worked fine.
Maybe the upgrades haven't because I am getting the same error. Is
there a way I can make sure I have all the right files for samba and
there isn't a mixture of versions on my server. Is there a way or
removing all the samba file and then reinstalling the rpm's? any help
or suggestions would be appreciated.
