Sorry, I should have read the email more carfully.

Ummm things begs a question.
Is samba running from inetd/xinetd .... most RedHat systems I've seen it
runs as a standalone deamon.
If this is the case then palying with xinetd wont affect samba and the
existing sessions wouldn't have seen the changes you made to /etc/*
chkconfig --list | grep -2 smb
I promise that if this doesn't help I'll reread the whole problem again.
