Question Quick Samba Question

I plan on installing Fedora onto a system for testing as I may use it for a firewall, file, and print server for a home network. My question is: What version of Samba is included with Fedora? Is it version 3? If not, is it difficult to upgrade to the latest patched version of Samba 3?

Thanks, DrOzz. I was looking on the site and just did not see the package list. If I could read, I could be brilliant.

[ed@localhost ed]$ rpm -qa | grep samba
[ed@localhost ed]$

Also, keep in mind that RedHat packages Samba a bit differently from the Samba folks, so when you upgrade versions directly from the Samba project, you'll need to uninstall the Samba components first.
