you'd still have to update your sources.list and the apt.conf for
APT:CACHE-LIMIT google on adding entries to the sources.list (if you
look at the file you'll see how easy it is (located
/etc/apt/sources.list) you'll probably have to make the apt.conf with
the one line i mentioned to get past the default cache limit.  once
you do that it's as simple as 'apt-get upgrade samba' i think is the
correct syntax to upgrade one package.  It's not hard after you learn
the ins and outs.  good luck
