that means smbd is already running or some other program is using that port

  killall smbd
should work

if that doesn't, run
  netstat -ap | grep netbios | grep LISTEN
the last column shows the PID of the process using the socket
  kill <pid>

or they could be running from inetd
then edit inetd.conf and killall -HUP inetd
