Samba failing to start!

Hi there,

Each time I try to start my samba, I get this error in my log..

bind failed on port 139 socket_addr= (Address already in use)

I am unsure how to cure this, and allow smbd to start correctly. nmbd and
smbd always ran as deamons on my Debian 2.0 system, but now a 'ps aux' 
fails to show 'smbd' although nmbd is still there.

I am unsure what I may have changed to create this problem, it used to work

Ideas on what might be the problem!!

Thanks in advance. 

(please Cc any replies to me direct, so I see them quicker :) )
