Unhappy Reloading Samba

I have a second system with Redhat 7.1 Server in which I set up Samba - at least I'm trying to. For some reason smpd and nmpd fail to load correctly. Its not a hardware issue since the system pings fine and I can see the other linux box.

If I type "samba status" it says both are running okay. If I type "samba stop" I get the message that both processes are stopping. If I then type "samba status" I get a message saying both are running.

Now, I figured that I would reload Samba. I downloaded the latest version (2.2-4.2-i386.rpm). I currently have 2.07 installed.

When I try to run rpm I get a message saying:

failed dependencies:
samba = 2.0.7 is needed by samba-swat-2.0.7-36

My questions are: How do I get around this?
and Is swat included with this rpm? If not, where
can I find just swat?

reloading samba

I went to the website you specified. But, alas, it didn't work. In trying to upgrade samba, I need to upgrade swat, which in turn needed dependencies for glibc which needed dependencies for glibc-common which needed dependencies for basesystem which needed dependencies for filesystem which needed dependencies for setup - which gave me a package error with rpm.
So I downloaded my current version of samba - 2.0.7 and re-installed that.
Still the same problem exists - both smpd and nmpd won't load correctly.
I'm half tempted to download rh7..3 and start over.
It would be nice if package manager would give an error other than "error" and just quit.
