I wouldn't do it just because of the problems you're experiencing.  Samba
is one of those daemons that a lot of people are likely to hit
simultaneously, and in great quantities. Why start many instances of smbd
and nmbd when only 1 of each will do.  Write a small startup script for it
in /etc/rc2.d and let it start at boot time.

Just my $.02
