You have found the source version of the file and not the binary
version.  The one you want should be called something like
samba-2.2.5-107.i586.rpm (or maybe i386 or x86_64 or something other
than src.)

Either you should find the binary package, or you will need to compile
the source package.  If you can find the correct binary package that
would be easiest.

By the way, what strange e-mail client are you using that randomly
capitalises things like the "r" in -rw-r--r-- and also randomly
removes some of the dashes?

/usr/lib/samba/classic is a strange location for Samba.  What
distribution is this anyway?

Since this is the source package, "installing" it would just unpack
the source code to somewhere like /usr/src/...

P.S.  Version 2.2.5 is very old.  It might be better to set up a new
server with a new version of Samba (e.g. 3.4.x or 3.5.x) and then move
the other services over to that too.
