Your question kind of answers itself. You say you have 4 MB available, which obviously can't fit 4.7 MB into it. That's it, nothing more to do. Either put more memory on your board, or leave something off.

You can run Samba without NMB, and connect via IP address instead of name, which might save you some space.

No, there isn't. However, as I said earlier, NMB doesn't have to be running, for Samba to work, you will then have to connect via IP address, instead of name.

Sir,

I have taken an old version of samba i.e samba-2.0.5.The size of smbd is 750Kb.
Will there be any problems with version,as it is an old release of samba?

You probably will have security issues. You will need to read through the subsequent release notes and security bulletins to be certain. There may also be many features that weren't implemented in such an early version of samba.
