Updating Samba on Fedora 8 (fc8)

I had some trouble finding this hopefully this will help other people find it easier. We have a backup server running Fedora 8. I brought the box back online with a raid 5 and got ready to install samba but ran into some errors.

In order to fix a error while installing samba:
# yum install samba-common samba samba-swat
Error: Missing Dependency: samba-common = 3.0.26a-6.fc8 is needed by package samba

I found an update for yum:
# yum install yum-fastestmirror yum-skip-broken

Then we can install samba:
# yum update
# yum install samba-common samba samba-swat

Remember to open up the firewall:
# system-config-firewall-tui
