[Samba] Help: smbd & nmbd normal states

Have you checked the output of testparm? Run it and see if it doesn't
like some configuration settings. I had very similar results when I had
some misspelled configuration settings.

And if that doesn't work, remove any and all log files, then add
loglevel = 10 to your smb.conf, then start the server, wait a bit, then
post the log files so we can help you debug the problem.

Subject: [Samba] Help: smbd & nmbd normal states

I have just installed Fedora Core 5 with the Samba server. However only
nmbd daemon is running. I thought both smbd and nmbd should be running. 
On trying to start smbd with:
>/sbin/service smb start
the result is "starting smbd [FAILED]"
Stopping smbd of course has no effect, and starting or restarting nmbd
just fine.

I'm stumped! I turned SELinux and the firewall off. I stopped sendmail.
configured a share, and set up a user for it. I can't think of what else
might be a problem. This worked before on a previous life of the system
under FC4.
