It doesn't matter what the distribution is; it is the same software.
Personally I think the rewrite-every-doc-for-every-distro is a HUGE
waste of time and effort.  Installing the packages is the *only* step
that is syntactically specific to a distro and any competent
administrator can install packages {Basically substitute
yum/zypper/apt/etc... for X and proceed].  Take a look at the very good,
and distribution agnostic documents on the Samba site which cover this
issue in pretty good detail;  avoid all other documents as many of them
are out of date or just plain bad.


For CentOS5 you can use the repository at
<http://ftp.sernet.de/pub/samba/tested/centos/5/repodata/> to get recent
Samba packages that are well packaged.
