installing samba on fedora core 3 (textmode)
Being new to linux, could someone please guide me to installing samba on my system? I'd like to clear out all old samba installations from the system as I keep seeing bits and pieces of it here and there.
How can I clear samba and start fresh. I tried following internet guides but I think I screwed it up
Hence, Id like to start fresh with instructions for fedora 3.
Please help asap before I get sacked!!!

ok, as root: do #rpm -qa | grep samba
that should display installed samba packages... and after knowing it, you can remove it via #rpm -e samba-version-x-x-x, after doing that the file smb.conf located at /etc/samba will be change to /etc/samba/smb.conf.rpmsave.... or you can also remove it using yum
#yum remove samba or #yum remove samba-server
then if yum repositories are properly configured, you can install the latest binary samba package for your distro by #yum install samba samba-server
then try to reconfigure the /etc/samba/smb.conf
hope it'll helps you a little
