Yes, you can copy smbpasswd and smb.conf from old setup to new setup. I
wouldn't expect it to work completely though...

executing 'testparm -s' will be useful for you.

I vaguely recollect Fedora 8 being samba-2.2.x and that is going to have
some issues with upgrade to samba-3.0.2x

There is information about samba upgrade from 2.x to 3.x at
http://www.samba.org/samba/docs - see the 'Official How-To'

no - samba requires both a samba and a unix account
