Make sure that the SWAT entry in /etc/inetd.conf (I think this file is
correct one) is pointing to the right location for SWAT.

I had this problem with SuSE 6.3 since it had SWAT already predefine in 
/etc/inetd.conf, but since I uninstall the SuSE .RPM and compiled from the 
Samba 2.0.7 source, SWAT was in a different location.  I used a symbolic 
link in the old location to maintain compatibility with SuSE instead of
changing /etc/inetd.conf.
