    I am at the point that I will have to update my trusty samba 2.0.9 to
3.0.6 or 2.2.11. (damn SP2)  Problem is that my production machine is still
running Mandrake 7.2 and, of course, there aren't any RPMs for the old
distro. So, I guess my option is to install from source. Do I need to rpm -e
the 2.0.9 before attempting to compile and install 2.2.11 or 3.0.6? My
server is a simple server that doesn't rely on ldap, kerbose, winbind, etc.
Does is make sense to go to 3.0.6 instead of 2.2.11? Any pointers or

    Installing from source, is there anything other than ./configure, make,
make install and rtfm for the new smb.conf entries??
