This is one of the pages I wrote in the past. It looks terrible, but the
content is still valid. However, it's on my list of the remaining pages
that will get an update soon.

It shouldn't be a big problem. Just make sure that you don't have any
package installed that installes Samba or Samba libraries.
For the simple setup you plan I guess (!) you should not encounter any
major problems. However, if you are coming back with strange problems,
we will tell you to update. ;-)
Since this is just a simple standalone server setup, you can test this
easily in a VM without a lot of extra work.
