And perhaps the best way, since it's the (current) Red Hat preferred

open a console/root terminal and enter
> chkconfig smb on
> service smb start

chkconfig --list smb will show you the current status of Samba in
terms of which run levels it runs in. Practially speaking, chkconfig
smb on will switch it on for the levels that matter.
