When I try and load smbd I get this error in the log :-

bind failed on port 139 socket_addr= (Address already in use)
Closing connections 04/02/1998 14:02:01 Server exit  (caught signal)

I am using Slackware 3 with Linux kernel 2.0.33, and 
Samba-1.9.18p4. there is no problem with Netbios naming as I can see th 
Linux machine in Network Neighbourhood and my samba client seems to be 
working fine.
I have tried comparing my setup to another machine that works and can 
find no major discrepancy.

Any help would be gratefully accepted.
