[Samba] SWAT + FC4 = Not working

Hitting a big mystery here.  I've configured samba properly but I would like
to run swat.  The /etc/xinetd.d/swat file contains:

service swat
        disable = no
        port            = 901
        socket_type     = stream
        wait            = no
        only_from       =
        user            = root
        server          = /usr/sbin/swat
        log_on_failure  += USERID

When I try to start the service my message log contains:

xinetd[1695]: bind failed (Address already in use (errno = 98)). service =
xinetd[1695]: Service swat failed to start and is deactivated.

Any clues, I just can't get the service to start.
