[Samba] Installing Samba on RedHat Linux 5.3

first, configure yum to use the sernet samba repos.  (you will need to be

- cd /etc/yum.repos.d
- wget http://ftp.sernet.de/pub/samba/3.6/rhel/5/sernet-samba.repo
- yum install samba3

a periodic "yum update" (we use a cron job) will keep your system up to
date, including Samba if you use the yum repos instead of "brute-forcing"
RPM to install individual packages.
