That's a pretty old Fedora you have there.  A friend recently had their
server severely compromised because it was running an old kernel: an
attacker got in to an ordinary user account with a bad password, then
used a kernel exploit (http://www.securityfocus.com/bid/18874/discuss)
to become root.

First I'd recommend you upgrade your OS.  Fedora 12 comes with Samba
3.4.2; SerNet produce Samba binaries for other major releases at
