You don't need to download it and compile. It's on your installation cds. Install all packages with names beginning with 'samba' and, if you'd like a GUI for it, also LinNeighborhood.

To install a package use the following command:
rpm -i packagename
Note that you need to be root to do this.

Use
locate smb.conf
It may be in /etc/samba/ or just in /etc.

Take a minute or two to learn vi. That is the Linux text editor. You can do a search on google.com and find a few tutorials on vi.
Learn how to start it, how to save your work and how to close it. You can use vi to edit smb.conf.

These are the tutorials that I recommend to everyone. Start with the one by IBM and follow it step by step. Let us know if you have any difficulties.

Remember to include the

domain logons = yes

command in your smb.conf file. This is required for Windows 2000/XP logons even though the literature suggests otherwise.

To find the smb.conf file, do the following from the command line:

cd /
find -name smb.conf
