	Have you looked in log.nmb yet?  There should be hints in there
about why your nmbd daemon isn't starting up.  
	What happens when you start it on the command line?  If you've got
a misconfiguration in your smb.conf file, that can keep nmb from starting,
check for things like having both a wins support=yes and a wins server
