Where would I be able to find a more up to date package for Centos that has all the new features as well as the security fixes?  I've tried samba website and I'm not sure if I can use the rpms for redhat 9 or fedora 4 ones with Centos??  
inasmuch as CentOS mirrors the upstream RHEL - the updates would come
from RHEL which tends not to unnecessarily upgrade versions but
backports security patches. The problem with new versions is that they
tend to break existing configurations and Red Hat is less than eager to
do that type of update.

That said, there have been some substantial changes - especially to
winbindd that may be of interest to you and if so, you could probably
just download the src rpm for Fedora and rebuild it.
