Hello people....
Ok I am having a strange problem with samba and more specificaly the nmb 

I run smbd and nmbd as daemons from the /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf so 
they run from inetd.
But when I check the status with SWAT it tells me that nmbd is not running. 
So I have to issue the command nmbd -D manualy.
Why? my setting on /etc/services and /etc/inetd.conf are exactly like the 
smb-HOW TO says they should be. Yet only smmbd runs correctly....

Can anyone help?
