[Samba] smbd and nmbd fail to start

Can anyone help with this?

I've installed samba 2.2.8a on Solaris 8. I have used the commands
/opt/local/samba/packages/samba_2.2.8a/sbin/smbd -D
/opt/local/samba/packages/samba_2.2.8a/sbin/nmbd -D

to start the daemons, however both fail to start because they cannot
find the following files


I don't understand why the files are being searched for under a
directory tree which is different from that which samba is installed in.
eg the error indicated the files are being looked for in
but samba is installed under

However, if I look in the /opt/local/samba/packages/samba_2.2.8a
directory for the above files, they are not present there either.

Can anyone advise me on a fix for this?
