Patching Samba 3.0.23c to 3.0.24
 
I downloaded 3.0.24 and was looking at samba's page on patching. But i was stumped when they showed the command:

patch -pl > "name"

what should use in place of "name"? or is there an easier way to handle this (like yum -y update on FC)?

thanks.

I guess that should have been patch -p1 < "name" - note the "pee one" instead of the "pee ell" and my use of the "smaller-than" sign.
The "name" in that case is the name of the file containing the patch.
