I don't think a fresh rh installation has smbd in inetd.conf.
Maybe the trial machine was set up not to start samba (init script), so
that samba was started by inetd. Now, maybe, the new machine is set up
to start samba on boot (init.d/smb) and you get the error.

You have the option to start samba from inetd, but don't do it:
1) take smbd and nmbd out of inetd
2) killall -1 inetd, killall smbd killall nmbd
3) /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb restart

chkconfig --list smb
to see if samba is set up to start at boot on your new system and the
trial one.
