There is *no* kernel version 2.6 for RHEL3. So you installed 
somebody-else's ready-rolled, or you compiled your own with the results

Revert to the standard (update 4) RHEL3 kernel, available through up2date.

The latest 100% stable Samba version (srpm from samba.org) runing 
without any problems whatsoever on my RHAS3 servers is 3.0.11.
