Sorry for this question, but I didn`t find the answere in the 
documentation or the web.

I use samba 3.0.8 on a SuSE linux 8.2.

Now, I have found a patch for samba <= 3.0.9
( samba-3.0.9-CAN-2004-1154.patch on www.samba.org)
I have the old source-files from my samba 3.0.8.
Also I know that you need the tool "patch" to install the patch. But how? in which directory must I execute the command, which option , ...?
Are newer source files necessary?

I know, that the best way is to install the newer samba versions. And I will do that, but anyway I won't to know how to install such a patch, may be for the next time. 

Thanks in advance,
