How to Install Samba into Slackware 10.1
Did a full installation.
I want to setup samba. Although, I did a full installation, it still says that
Samba is not installed.
I have downloaded the latest samba RPM from samba.org.
How do I install the new samba into the Slackware 10.1??
Any help is very much appreciated?

if for some reason you don't have samba try and find a source instead of a rpm look for a .tgz or tar.gz fileSome people have told me they don't think a fat penguin really embodies the grace of Linux, which just tells me they have never seen a angry penguin charging at them in excess of 100mph. They'd be a lot more careful about what they say if they had.

no point using the source
use the slackware cd and installpkg *samba* or download the samba package from the slackware FTP,
then 'installpkg *samba*.tgz
setup your /etc/samba/smb.conf for your shares, use 'testparm' to check its a valid config
then start samba with /etc/rc.d/rc.samba start
if it is not executable make it so with "chmod +x /etc/rc.d/rc.samba"
and it will start on boot,
