If you used Red Hat's packages you need to install the swat package also.
Red Hat do not include SWAT in the main Samba package.

If you used the samba-team package it is included.

Did you check that SWAT is:

1) Included in /etc/services

	swat	901/tcp

2) In /etc/xinet.d/swat (see documentation)

3) Allowed in /etc/hosts.allow and not blocked in /etc/hosts.deny
