Help me !

I cannot start smbd, it immediatly stops, I've got in my log.smb

[1999/05/19 14:53:43, 0] lib/util_sock.c:open_socket_in(709)
 bind failed on port 139 socket_addr= (Adresse déja utilisée.)

And then It stops, I cannot launch smbd. I my /etc/services, I've got the
two lines :

netbios-ssn   139/tcp
netbios-ns     137/upd

and in /etc/inetd.conf

netbios-ssn stream tcp nowait root /usr/local/samba/bin/smbd smbd
netbios-ns dgram upd wait root /usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd nmbd

I'm using kernel 2.0.36 and Samba 2.0.4 on a RH Mandrake 5.3.
Please help ! I'm getting mad...
Where did I make a mistake ?
