[Samba] Controlling Samba with xinetd

I have tried using smbd and nmbd with inetd.
The problem I ran into was during startup.
Using samba as the master browser and PDC,
the samba processes were not running until the
first time something explicetly accessed 
the port on the samba node.  Often password
validation from Windows98 machines would fail 
until something stimulated inetd into running
nmbd and smbd.
