If it started from init.d try this :

/etc/init.d/smb status

I don't have samba running for instance and I get this :

jupiter:~ # /etc/init.d/smb status
Checking for SAMBA nmbd                                        unused
Checking for SAMBA smbd                                        unused
jupiter:~ #

Hope that helps.
