Dear pdsmicro,

There is no such command "system-config-packages" (at least under your system and my ubuntu :-) )

Since samba is not installed, you can search for it in the installation CDs. Otherwise, you have to download the RPM package and install it by yourself.

Search for the RPM under this link:


You can install RPM packages by running: rpm -i sambaxxx.rpm

I hope I helped.

Fedora uses Yum for package management. Try the following:

yum install samba4

for the main Samba distribution. You might also want:

yum install samba-domainjoin-gui
