"As of this writing, the latest stable version of Samba is
2.0.3. You will need the source distribution, it is called
samba-2.0.3.tar.gz, grab it from the Samba homepage
"First thing to do is extract the source distribution. Assuming
you've downloaded it to /tmp, do this (you don't need to be root
$ tar -zxvf samba-2.0.3.tar.gz

files in a directory called samba-2.0.3. The Samba source
