We are using Gentoo Linux on a custom made P-IV-based raid1 scsi box.
Currently, gentoo offers 3.0.22-r3
Gentoo portage is technically very different from rpm, but once you get
used to it, it's just as simple (IMHO even simpler wrt package
It basically comes down to:
emerge --sync # to get the latest version
emerge samba # dowload, compile and install
rc-update add samba default # start samba at boot
Configuration is just standard smb.conf editing (or webmin, if installed).
Just my 2 (euro)cents.
