CentOS4 RPMS for x86-64 would be awesome.

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

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 systems.

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