For my Fedora 3 and 4 machines out in the wild, I simply removed the 
rpms altogether and installed from source.

It was a painless procedure, even including the vscan vfs objects.

Symlink the config files to the /usr/local/samba/lib directory and it 
should work just fine.  Sure makes upgrading to later versions easier.  :)
