It is fairly simple, you download the Samba tarball and unpack it. you
the 'cd' it the Samba dir created, run './configure', then 'make'. Stop
any running Samba binaries and then run 'make install'. This should
overwrite your existing Samba install, providing you use the same
'./configure' options as you did with your previous install.

You will have to also make sure you have all the required packages
installed to compile Samba, but you should already have these
installed from the previous compile.

Having said all that, you are having problems, but it very hard to say
why you are having problems, you haven't given us enough info.

What OS ?
What error messages are you getting ?
What isn't working ?
