Because until the SAMBA_STARTUP command file is run, the logical names 
required by SWAT and SMBD do not exist.

The SAMBA_STARTUP.COM procedure must be run after the startup procedure 
for the TCPIP services.

If you enable the services with SET CONFIG, then all attempts to start 
the SMBD services will fail until the SAMBA_STARTUP.COM is run.  You 
also may end up with data corruption because some files may not be 
properly initialized.
