if you installed from RPM - rpm -qa | grep samba
if you installed from source - locate samba (then it should tell you a bunch)
I think you can also look at log.smdb or log.nmdb
and I am sure I made this the hardest possible - there is probably
someting liek smb --version

one of the two (or both) you can chown user.group FILENAME
and it handles both changes
if you getent passwd or getent group , doesnt it show all your NT users?
I did winbind once (way back when) and I believe set up properly,
linux sees the groups/users
