samba instal problem

well i'm back with another newb question.

i d/l'd "samba-2.2.3a-20020206.i386.rpm"
as root rpm -ivh samba-******** etc.
then i check the install using " rpm -q samba***** etc.."
i get a "not installed" ?

some of the files are there, but from what i read and seen
t a site for samba info, there should be more files?

i'm at work so i don't have the link to the site where i got he info,

inconclusion to my newb question, what did i miss are there other files i need to install?

gonna change my sig to :
"if it works, screw with it, till it don't. then fix it."

Do "find / -name samba |less" to see where your Samba files ended up.
