Ok, I am trying again with the sernet instructions on
enterprisesamba.com, this time aptitude is telling me that there is no
public key for the site.

Can I still install from here? Or do I need to add the key, if so where
do I get it from?

"http://enterprisesamba.com/  offers Samba packages for SLES, RHEL, and
