The Samba packages on Fedora 3 should be installed like this:

rpm -Uhv --nodeps /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/samba-common-3.0.14a-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Uhv /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/samba-3.0.14a-1.i386.rpm
rpm -Uhv /usr/src/redhat/RPMS/i386/samba-client-3.0.14a-1.i386.rpm 

Don't forget to backup /var/lib/samba/* and /etc/samba/* before the update
and after the
shutdown of all samba deamons.
