Check Samba version

It's best to run samba version >= 3.4 for compatibility with Windows 7 clients. So check your version number with:

apt-cache showpkg samba

And if necessary add backports to your /etc/aptsources.list and update your package list.

echo "deb lenny-backports main contrib" >> /etc/apt/sources.list
apt-get update


apt-get install samba
apt-get -t lenny-backports install samba
