what is the path of smb.conf

I would like to edit it and add my office's DOMAIN name there. Will it help if I want to connet my Fedora C5 to a Domain ?

Depends on where or how it's installed. Could be in /etc/samba or /usr/local/samba

Try using and familiarizing yourself with tools like find or locate...

on FC5, the smb.conf file is found at /etc/samba/smb.conf.

smb.conf will configure samba if you want to share files from FC5 to Windows clients, but that file won't help you connect to a Domain, if that is what you want to do.
