How do I resolve a "lp_servicenumber" error

I'm trying to execute the samba server, smbd as a daemon on Linux (RedHat5.2 Intel). I use

smbd -D -l logfile -d 7

to get a log of what happened.
The daemon starts and then dies immediately. The log reveals an error as follows:

[1999/08/26 17:18:28, 7] param/loadparm.c:lp_servicenumber(2634)
  lp_servicenumber: couldn't find lp

I have no clue how to rectify this. I'd greatly appreciate some help
