you could untar:
and it would work if your smb.conf pointed to a valid WINS server.
( you'll get gripes about missing codepages without the codepages
from the tgz in /usr/local/lib/samba/codepages )
if any of your windowses are able to provide WINS serverness, that
would be the way to go( HDD space-wise ), probably.
if its a bunch of unruly w95 machines, you'd likely be running
at the very least nmbd; nor sure if nmbd will run w/o smbd also;
but smbclient -M <IPAddr> instead of smbclient -M <NetBIOS-Name>
from here at the moment is failing with "session request failed",
whereas w/<NetBIOS-Name> is succeeding ok with just the two files
listed above present and accounted for ( because different machine
is WINS server ).
