samba install blooey

What's the magic to clean up after a failed install of a package?

My Dapper saga continues. I tried to intall samba, swat and smbfs. swat
failed saying samba needed to be installed first. I removed swat - the
removal failed. I tried removing samba, that failed. Tried reinstalling
samba, that failed.

How do I force these packages off my system so I can start again? And
next time I guess I'll do it one package at a time...

Regards, K.
