If you need support for the SerNet packages, you will have
to contact SerNet.

The Fedora specfile provided with Samba is compatible
with RHEL4.  I don't build RHEL4 packages only because
IMO if you pay for support for RedHat, installing non-vendor
supplied packages would void your support agreement.

Althought I could provide RPMS for the lates version
of CentOS which should be binary comatible with RHEL4

While I'm at it, is there any pressing need for 64-bit
rpms as well?
