[Samba] smbd & nmbd fail to start - log file entry is..

Slackware 8.0 (2.2.19)

Have configured samba with swat - used a past good and simple config file.

Issued commands: /usr/sbin/smbd -D and /usr/sbin/nmbd -D

Checked the process list with ps ax and there is neither a smbd nor nmbd

Then issued commands: usr/sbin/smbd -d 10 and usr/sbin/nmbd -d 10

Get entries in /var/log/syslog (for both commands) which are:

Jul 22 09:05:44 humphry inetd[74]: netbios-ns/udp server failing (looping),
service terminated

Any ideas as to what I can do to solve this problem?

Thanks Much
