Tried but could not solve the problem.

Now I download "Samba-2.2.5-1" from Samba.org website and upgrade my samba 

# rpm -qa|grep samba

# service smb start
Starting SMB services: [ OK ]

Only "smb services" indicated. "nmb service" disappears (which appears 
simultaneously in the previous verseion 2.2.3a)

Is it correct for version 2.2.5-1 ???  Kindly advise me whether I need to 
have it reinstall ???
