The old version that RedHat is stringing along in RHEL4 is so far bak
as to be nearly useless for comparison. I've been running current
code on RHEL 4 for over a year now.
The 3.0.23c tarball has a "makerpms.sh" script (under
packaging/RHEL/, IIRC...) that will build RPMs that RHEL4 is quite
happy with, and can be installed over the top of the stock RHEL4 packages.
The one caveat is that you may want to disable SELinux for SAMBA, as
the new versions move the cache dir from /var/cache/samba/ to
/var/lib/samba/, and don't (re)set the SELinux labels when creating
this new directory. Mostly, this affects winbindd. I'd post the
instructions on how to do this, but I'm away from the office on
vacation right now, and don't have those notes handy. You should be
able to find them in past posts easily enough by searching the samba
list archives for "SELinux".
