yes, there is a smb.conf file. But according to testparm the passdb backend
was not set. So I set it to smbpasswd. Now it appears to work. 
Thanks for the help !!

Do you have a smb.conf file at all?  If not then I suggess loading up 
swat and get one created.  Alternately, since you are pretty much a 
clean slate at this point, perhaps a rpm install with the switch to put 
missing files back in.
