samba installation with centos 5

I installed centos 5 and I could see /etc/samba/smb.conf and testparm but I could not find smbd file. Besides, when I tried
/sbin/service smb start
it says: smb service not available.
Do you know what might be wrong? Does Centos 5 has complete samba package with it?

It does, but is it installed? Try

yum list installed smbd (or could be smb or samba)

if not there,

yum list available smb smbd samba (sorry, but I really can't recall the package name)


yum install whichever_package_from_last_command (ie samba, smb, smbd)
