Here are three ways:
1) if using Gnome as your desktop, click on the 'foot' -> Programs ->
System -> Service Configuration. You will be prompted for the root
password, if you are not already root. Go down through the list, put a
check next to 'smb'. For me, nmbd starts automatically as a consquence
of smb starting.
2) from a console, you can type 'serviceconf'. This basically does
exactly the same as option 1).
3) from a console (or, in case you have no GUI), you type 'ntsysv'.
Again, this gives you a list of services and checkboxes; tick off 'smb'.
