Quoting Gene Poole <Gene.Poole at fds.com>:

>      Entered:    service start smb
>      Received:   smbd start failed
>                  nmbd start successful
> Using Webmin I get:
>      "Access Control error on smbd"
>      "Start Failed"

What does /var/log/messages, /var/log/samba/smbd.log say?
