If you want to use CentOS, then your best bet would probably be :
http://enterprisesamba.com/index.php?id=123

They do have a 64 bit packages, but you have to click on the 386
packages and navigate up and down to see the x86_64 packages. Better
yet, simply add this repo file as /etc/yum.repos.d/sernet-samba.repo
and then yum install samba3*. Not samba, but samba3 as they name
packages differently.

http://ftp.sernet.de/pub/samba/3.5/rhel/5/sernet-samba.repo
[sernet-samba]
name=SerNet Samba Team packages (RedHat Enterprise Linux 5)
type=rpm-md
baseurl=http://ftp.sernet.de/pub/samba/3.5/rhel/5
enabled=1
gpgcheck=0

Let us know how it goes. Are you using 2008 or 2008R2?
