[Samba] Can't start new version of Samba

I am running Red Hat Enterprise Linux AS release 4, with Samba having
been installed with the OS installation.  Samba is running and works as
I downloaded the source code for a newer version, and walked through the
configure, make, and make install processes.  After doing so I cannot
get the new version to run.
Leaving everything as it is the old version runs at reboot.  If I stop
the exiting version (service smb stop) and attempt to run smbd from the
location of the new installation (/usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd -D) nothing
happens (smbd is not listed when I ps ax | grep mbd).  I added
/usr/local/samba/bin to my path.  The original versions of smbd and nmbd
are in /usr/sbin (I believe).
What do I need to do to use the newer version?  Did I do something wrong
with the configure, make, and make install processes (I followed along
with the Using Samba book)?
Any help would be greatly appreciated.
