Sheesh...your right Buck - that certainly makes more sense! (doh)
Can you tell I'm not a *NIX guy...LOL

I just downloaded: samba-client-3.6.24-1.aix6.1.ppc.rpm

Now I need to do some research on how to upack this RPM and see
what happens :)

Turn your question upside down and I think it'll be clearer.

AIX binaries like those at Perzl are compiled against a specific AIX version, so you can have Samba that is compiled against AIX 4.3 and another Samba that's compiled against AIX 5.3.

You could run any of those binaries in PASE at IBM i 6.1.

I tried checking for the version via DSPSFWRSC - no luck with that
method. Also tried entering the oslevel command (via STRQSH) but the
command couldn't be found...

Yeah, PASE isn't really AIX. It's an amorphous subset of AIX. The real key to getting AIX binaries to run in PASE is finding binaries compiled for POWER hardware. That's where Perzl shines for us :-)
