you don't have to burn programs that u will install

download *.rpm files
(there are other type of files like *.tar.gz)

rpm -Uvh therpmfile.rpm

that's it as far as installing goes

i think there's good doc at mandrake.com about samba setting

Sorry , I wasnt very clear, I downloaded it at work and stuck it on disk and took it home, Im trying to get my home network going. Currently my Mandrake 9.0 computer has No network or internet connection. Apart from I can ping my Xp computer.
So im sitting here with this Samba latest file(tar?) thinking how do i install this. I can just install the ver that comes with Mandrake 9.0, but I thought I would install the latest but im stuck.

ok..
start with $ --> command you type

in order to read cd u have to mount(let linux know) your cdrom
first see if your distro automount your cd
$ls /mnt/cdrom

if you see files, it's mounted
if not,
$mount /mnt/cdrom

let's copy the file to /tmp
$cp /mnt/cdrom/thetarfile /tmp
go to /tmp
$cd /tmp
unpack the tar file(like zip file)
$tar xvf(or xzvf) thetarfile
go to the directory that's created
$cd samba*
$ ./configure && make
$ su
(enter password)
#(as root) make install

now u r done
