yes, FreeRADIUS will read ALL files in sites-enabled/ and ALL files in modules/
directory. never leave 'backups' or editor backups (tilde emacs files) or RCS etc versions
lying around in those directories (this is a common problem)

the latest SAMBA release in 3.5.x should work fine. 

I note you are runninging 2.1.9 - why that version? 2.1.10 should be available
for CentOS 6 with yum.  if self-compiling, use 2.1.12
