[Samba] How can I restart samba?

I'm fiddling with the various configuration files to try and get Samba
working - after making changes to various files I end up rebooting [shudder]
the box to get the settings to take.

I invoke the smbd, and nmbd binaries from a root bash command line, each
with the "-D" option. I can't seem to send a "kill SIGHUP" command to the
PID I read from a "ps -ex" command because I get the message "bash: kill:
SIGHUP: no such pid".

Can someone give me a time saving tip?
