Installing and Uninstalling SAMBA?

Before I TRY to install the latest version of Samba do I need to uninstall the old samba before I do it?

I guess you have to uninstall it first... do I just use the SUSE uninstall thingy.

Any things I should think about when I install the new samba?

I just read that you don't have to uninstall the old version.

However I am having problems

In the source directory I typed



make install

...and everything seemed to have gone ok, but when I check the version it is still the old 2.8 one not the new 3.0.2a one. I have even rebooted. What have I done wrong?

Probably something very stupid
