I think it should be at /etc/smb.conf

or if everything fails try

locate smb.conf .or if even that fails or you dont have 'locate' try

find / -name smb.conf

Erm, are you sure? "2.4.2" sounds more like a kernel version than a Red Hat version.

The default location for smb.conf on Red Hat is /etc/samba/smb.conf if you have the Samba server RPM installed.

But use "locate" as previously mentioned to make sure.
