Thanks for your response.  I got the version from samba.org as a tar.gz 
file, which turned out to be source code.  I did install from 
source.  Where can I get an rpm package for this version?  Alternatively 
(for my longer term benefit), how do I a) get FC3 to look at/use the 
upgrade version in the samba team's directory structure, or b) install the 
upgrade version into FC3's directory structure?

If you are unwilling to defend your right to your own life, then you are 
like a mouse trying to argue with owls. You think their ways are wrong. 
They think you are dinner.
