[Samba] Stupid Newbie: can't connect localhost:901 - help

I changed disable to "no" as you suggested and
restarted xinetd...still nothing
Mozilla is set to "Direct Connection to the Internet"
I also looked in hosts.allow and hosts.deny and there
were no entries in either of these. I tried adding:
to hosts.allow, then I logged out since I didn't know
how to make sure that this took affect. And this did
nothing. I'm not sure that logging out was good
enough , maybe i should try rebooting...or if there is
a command that will do this then great.
I hope this helps someone help me.
