If Samba is installed and working, the odds are pretty good SWAT might be installed and working, too. Try this:
If that doesn't work, the exact method for installing and configuring SWAT will depend on your distro. Here's a good example to start with (it should work for Ubuntu, for example):
... or ...
1) sudo apt-get install samba swat

2) sudo vi /etc/xinet.d/swat
# default: off
# description: SWAT is the Samba Web Admin Tool. Use swat \
#              to configure your Samba server. To use SWAT, \
#              connect to port 901 with your favorite web browser.
service swat
        port    = 901
        socket_type     = stream
        wait    = no
        # Use only_from if you want to restrict access
        # only_from = localhost
        user    = root
        server  = /usr/sbin/swat
        log_on_failure  += USERID
        disable = no
3) sudo /etc/init.d/xinetd restart
'Hope that helps .. PSM
