There is an additional package that needs to be installed if you want to
run a samba server (i.e. have windows see the linux box) using the
redhat rpms.

samba-<version number>   server code
samba-client-<version number> client code
samba-common-<version number> code that is common to both of the above

Install the samba-2.2.3a-6 rpm from your cd and samba-swat-2.2.3a-6 rpm
as well to go for the easy config.
