For some reason red hat feels they do not need to support their 32 bit users, which my server is running, and updating the OS does not update certain packages like samba and php. Even though I have paid support with red hat they will not provide support to update the needed packages.

I think RH 5 has a samba 3.x package, or was that only Centos?  I
don't recall what version it was intro'd
