I tried to install Samba server into my hp-proliant server that is
support for linux 2.6 smp Kernel. But when I am going to install samba
it removed my smp kernel and try to install samba. What I want to know
is why samba installation removed existing smp linux kernel. Below I
have paste the screen shot of the samba installation.


scmsamba:~# apt-get install samba winbind krb5-doc krb5-user krb5-config
