i typed in google "http://www.tek-tips.com/viewthread.cfm?qid=471016"

as you have no idea how your machine is setup and there exists no 
documentation in your company you have 3 options:

* just disable the service and don't touch anything else
* setup a new machine with documentation
* just google around

this is *not* just a samba specific question

i would setup a new machine when obviously nobody has a clue about the 
software state and someone expects me to take over responisbility for a 
setup without documentation and a known state
