Dear everyone,
    I've been trying to set up Samba server, so that I can access the files 
a Windows XP laptop.
    The problem is: after executing /etc/init.d/smb start  or 
/usr/sbin/service smb start
the status report shows that SMBD is not running (NMBD is running). Later, I 
to start SMBD with SWAT, but the problem remains.
    Could anybody give me a hint about how to make SMBD run? I think that's 
reason why I can't find the LInux Server on my Windows XP laptop.  By the 
I'm running RedHat 8.0.  I also removed the older version of Samba-2.- and 
a Samba-3.0.0-, but the problem was not resovled.
    Thanks in advance.
