[Samba] Samba 3 startup

I'd like to see if I can get some clarification on what is the preferred 
method of starting the Samba daemons (note that we are using Solaris, not 
Linux).  This is something that I'm not able to find any explanation of in 
any of the Samba 3 documentation that I've looked at so far.  In Samba 2 I 
would have the Samba daemons started up by the following in my /etc/inetd.conf:

netbios-ssn    stream  tcp     nowait  root    /usr/local/samba/sbin/smbd smbd
netbios-ns     dgram   udp     wait    root    /usr/local/samba/sbin/nmbd nmbd

but I don't know if this same inetd.conf setup is appropriate for Samba 
3.  And what about windd?

Thanks a lot,
