Xinetd vs. Inetd

I am just wondering what the differences are between xinetd and inetd... specifically the differences in running them.

For example, my gentoo system uses xinetd, but the samba howto has instructions for running the service using inetd. What changes do I have to make to get samba to work for me?

When I posted this I didn't realize that you could start services manually with /etc/init.d/samba start , but i think that's what I'll do, because that's enough for my purposes. Thanks for the help.
