you need to install samba. it is on your install cd's and available through your favorite update tool. (apt, yum, etc...)

check to see if yum is installed.
if so, open a terminal window, type
yum install samba*
that will install everything you need. (and probably a couple things you don't, but you can remove extra stuff once you get things figured out)
you might also need to use root permissions to do the install. (unless of course you're already in root)
