Howto use SerNet Samba packages with Yum:

For example for RHEL 5 (tested packages):

- cd /etc/yum.repos.d
- wget http://ftp.sernet.de/pub/samba/tested/rhel/5/sernet-samba.repo
- yum install samba3

To use the latest packages, use 
  wget http://ftp.sernet.de/pub/samba/recent/rhel/5/sernet-samba.repo

CentOS 5.2 would use the same instructions.  except use the:

You may [want to|have to] uninstall your samba before installing samba3 from

I had 3.0.28a but when I attempt to install from yum the most current
version it supplies is 3.0.28-1.el5_2.1.  I realize it is a different
package, but it didn't seem to solve my issue.  Any help with getting yum to
give me a more current version, or other ideas to solve this issue?
