Go to www.phonax.com for samba.

It has all the files that you will need.

Download them, edit them to have your server name, restart the samba services.

BTW what do you mean by linux 6.2? As far as I am aware the kernel is only up to ver 2.4 and samba is only up to 2.0.

Or did you mean the version of Redhat or another distro? If so which distro.
