[Samba] RedHat EL 3 rpm spec file and samba 3.0.14a?

Is the RedHat RPM spec file included with the samba-3.0.14a.tar.gz source 
files compatible with RedHat EL 3? In other words, are the locations for the 
various support directories (/var/lib/samba, /var/cache/samba, etc.) the 
same between the RedHat EL 3 version of samba (currently stuck at 3.0.9, I 
think) and the official samba.org <http://samba.org> versions?

I would like to upgrade my installation samba beyond the RedHat sanctioned 
version in order to take advantage of the new features and significant bug 
fixes that have come along recently. Does anyone have experience with this 
type of situation?
