there is no need to install a new heimdal if you use the SerNet RPMs because
they are linked statically against the needed kerberos libs. On ftp.sernet.de
you find all samba3 RPMs for all recent SUSE versions with working kerberos and
now also RPMs for RHEL3 with sane kerberos support to even join a Windows 2003
Active Direcory.
