What exactly do you mean? How to install the packages? Or configure the
Member Server in general?

Why do you want to install the Member Server with the old version 3x?
Samba 4.1 is maintained and contains many improvements.

Samba 3.6 will be discontinued soon (when 4.2 will be released). At
least then you have to move to 4x or you have a vendor that continues to
provide you bug and security fixes.
