What kind of package did you download (e.g. rpm, tar.g.z etc)? RHEL ships with Samba so I am sure you could just install it from your discs.

AFAIK you need 3 packages (samba, samba-client and samba-common) inorder to successfully run samba. BTW, your RHEL ships with samba, if its not installed already (check with 'rpm -q samba'), its on the discs, you can install all of them from the discs.
