Sorry for the direct post....
You might try <chkconfig --list smb> (check the man page for the exact
syntax) to check the status of your smb. Then try <chkconfig --add smb>
(again, checking the man page; I'm writing these commands from hazy
memory). Chkconfig is a useful utility for managing a number of
services. Eventually, you might find it useful for nmbd and winbindd,
Those who are afraid to take the next step will have wasted their entire previous journey.
