A very simple method (there are others): add the command you use to run samba into /etc/rc.d/rc.local .

you can also use this command: setup

Here's how I do it:

1) If smb is not already in /etc/init.d then copy it there,

2) cd to /etc/rc.d/rc5.d

I usually do an 'ls' to see whats already there, then I use the highest # thats not taken usually 98 or 97

3) ln -s ../init.d/smb S9xsmb

x is the # that's not already taken

This is for RH
