missing lib files in samba?

I just tried connecting my fc2 to our local network. However, when I "testparm /etc/samba/smb.conf", I get the following error:

"Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
Processing section "[homes]"
Processing section "[share]"
Processing section "[everyone]"
map_file: Failed to load /usr/lib/samba/upcase.dat - No such file or directory
map_file: Failed to load /usr/lib/samba/lowcase.dat - No such file or directory
creating lame upcase table
creating lame lowcase table
map_file: Failed to load /usr/lib/samba/valid.dat - No such file or directory
creating default valid table
Loaded services file OK.
Press enter to see a dump of your service definitions"

What are upcase.dat, lowcase.dat and

My smb.conf reads

workgroup = MSHOME
netbios name = MICAHLINUX
encrypt passwords = yes

read only = no
browseable = no

path = /home/mjm/
browseable = yes
write list = mjm

path = /mnt/mshome/
read only = no
browseable = yes

Am I missing some dependencies or something?
Any help would be wonderfully appreciated.

I am having this exact samo problem.

Turns out you have to install samba-client to fix the problem
