I am struggling with starting smbd and nmbd as daemon under
RH7.0.  I made a file just like the example in the doc:

/usr/local/samba/bin/smbd -D
/usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd -D

which I called "startsmb".  Then I changed added the execution 
permission and ran it, but it doesn't run as a daemon.
I also tried running both commands from the command line, but
it doesn't show up as my process:
ps ax |grep smbd
would give me just
1234 pts/0    S    0:00 grep smbd

Would you have any idea what the problem could be?

Thanks in advance!
