I take the daemon of the new one, samba 3.0.14a...:
/usr/local/samba/bin/smbd start
/usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd start
If I start testparm, he is testing always the samba 3.0.7.. version, not the 
started new one?
If I start testparm -V in the directory of the samba 3.0.14a, it comes samba 
version 3.0.7...?

Another problem:
In Yast of suse9.2 there is only the old version(3.0.7..), not the new one?
If I want to delete the old one, I get warning error dependencies 
messages( inconsistences in your system, if you will delete)? So, delete or 
And another problem:
If I want to create an ldapdmin account:
/usr/local/samba/bin/smbpasswd -w <password>
I get an errormessage:
"permission denied"

The samba 3.0.14a was comiled with the --with-ldapsam option.
