xinetd.conf is very different to inetd.conf. Rather than editing the
xinetd.conf file directly, put the details of the service into a file
in /etc/xinetd.d/ and format it like this:
# default: on
# description: swat configures samba
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
port = 901
type = UNLISTED
wait = no
user = root
server = /usr/sbin/swat
server_args = swat
disable = no
then restart xinetd (service xinetd restart) and try again.
Note, this is untested. You may need to check the xinetd.conf manual
page to make sure the above is formatted correctly.

AjD feels frustrated in his attempts to establish the delinitations of
horror in puppy-burying.
