If you're running reiserfs, you probably corrupted the /var/lib/samba db 
files.  Have you tried a fsck?  Even if you're not running reiserfs, it 
can't help after a hard halt.  Also, a small UPS with Network UPS Tools 
(NUT) comes in very handy for sudden power downs! :)  Especially if 
you're running reiserfs; it REALLY doesn't handle being dropped very well.
