Note I started from this Samba site http://www.enterprisesamba.com/samba-packages/red-hats-rhel/ and then clicked here: http://www.enterprisesamba.com/samba-packages/red-hats-rhel/ then here: http://www.enterprisesamba.com/samba-packages/red-hats-rhel/rhel-5/ ending up here: http://ftp.sernet.de/pub/samba/3.6/rhel/5/x86_64/ where I downloaded the rpm files

Ah, I see what you mean. One of the SerNet Samba folks should hopefully be able to answer that question.

The -K option apparently does this but you can see from the output of the two command-lines I invoked that it cannot verify the signatures and complains " NOT OK (MISSING KEYS: GPG#f4428b1a)". I am thinking I need to supply a public key file using the -rcfile option.
