samba 2.0.6
hp-ux 10.20

When I attempt to start nmbd as a daemon from the command line, I get an
error message stating:

bind failed on port 137

nmbd is not running, nor is it setup via inetd. smbd starts up successfully.

I found many similar problems in the archives, but no resolutions to the
problem. Any help would be appreciated.
