I will say this again but first this time, as you seemed to miss it
last time:

Why are you trying to run two instances of Samba on the same
machine ????

Having got that out of the way, how are you trying to run Samba ? as a
DC ? or as something else ?

You posted:

 it has something to do with:
   ;root directory =
   ;lock directory =
   ;state directory =
   ;cache directory =

The ';' turns off the lines and the defaults will be used, but if you
remove the ';', then all those directory will be set to NONE, i.e. they
will not be used.
