    those three libraries are needed by the version of samba you are trying to install. Samba should be installed on Centos by default. If you are updating you need those packages that have those libraries in them to continue. what version of Centos are you running?

    Thnx for your fast reply

    I use CentOS-4.4 & I found folder Samba inside the /etc but while I was working on that site
    it started by "how do we tell if Samba is installed. The most easiest, open a terminal window and type in the following: smbd -V "

    when i tried this command this error appear "bash: smbd: command not found"

    i have tried smb.conf and also command not found appear
    now i dont know whether SAMBA is installed or not. and if it is already installed on centos why the previous error appears !!!!

    what do you recommend

    thnx in advance

    You may want to investigate mount.cifs.
    It is much simpler than samba and it lets you sill access a Windows server.
    Do a man mount.cifs for info.
    Good Luck,
