Question Samba & SWAT - RHL 8

Thank you for your help!

I'm self-studying Linux using the book "Red Hat Linux Administration, A Beginners Guide" (excellent book!). The book & its labs use RHL 8.

The Samba lab asks me to install Samba using redhat-config-packages, and also to download and install SWAT from the Internet.

In searching the Internet I see there are newer versions of Samba that include SWAT. I also see there are older .rpm's of Samba specific to RHL 8.

How do I know what Samba & Swat will and won't work on my RHL 8 installation?

Thank you for your help!

Did I Post in the wrong Forum? Been several days without a reply.

When installing RPM's, how do you know which .rpm's will work with your distribution?

I'm learning/studying RHL 8 and need to install SWAT to work with a Samba lab in the book.

Can I install the latest version of Samba which includes SWAT?

I notices some .rpm's list the distribution they are intended for, why is this?

Any help is appreciated!

Thank you,
Randy Graves
