I suggest you follow the official documentation on www.samba.org  It is
anybody's guess what you are looking at now.

If you're using a recent linux distro, then you are probably using a version
of xinetd, which will need a file created in /etc/xinetd.d/ for the service.
Use the others in there as a template.  Alternatively you could just install
the package for samba, and depending on your distro, which you did not list,
you may have to install swat as a separate package.
