If you want to use CentOS, then your best bet would probably be :

They do have a 64 bit packages, but you have to click on the 386
packages and navigate up and down to see the x86_64 packages.   Better
yet, simply add this repo file as /etc/yum.repos.d/sernet-samba.repo
and then yum install samba3*.  Not samba, but samba3 as they name
packages differently.

name=SerNet Samba Team packages (RedHat Enterprise Linux 5)

Let us know how it goes.  Are you using 2008 or 2008R2?
