How2 uninstall samba client or the samba pkg

Using BLAG Linux (based on Fedora C5).
Whats the easiest way to uninstall or disable samba ?
Do not want the users on one Linux pc to access the windows PC's shares on the LAN...

1. How to disable samba. Stopped the netd service but did not help...
2. How to uninstall smbclient ?

Thanks anyone,

if it is rpm based distro you should be able to do the following.

rpm -qa samba*
this will fine the full name of samba and the version. It will also find anything begining with samba that is installed.

rpm -e <packagename>
replace version with the version you are running.
