[Samba] SWAT + FC4 = Not working

just a question, and I apologize if this was clarified already, are you trying to use swat from the same samba server of from another machine?
if you want to use it from another system you might want to try removing the "only_from=" line.
but if that is not the case ignore my suggestion.

This is what i've made for xinetd.d/swat and everything goes find

service swat
        socket_type      = stream
        protocol            = tcp
        wait                  = no
        user                  = root
        server               = /usr/local/sbin/swat
        server_args       = -s /etc/samba/smb.conf
        disable              = no

then configure your hosts.allow to access via http.
Strange bind failed (already in use use) perhaps you try to run swat 
another way than with xinetd ?
