I'm a newbie to samba, too. but if you are using Debian stable, the file name for inetd is changed. Do a 'locate' inetd and it should pick up the Debian full name which you must use to start or stop it. I've been working on sambe for some time now and still not working. Good luck.

Okay, have either of you gotten any success with Samba?

If not, where in the article are you running into issues?

It's been over a year since I set up a Samba server and I just got mine up and running in about 45 minutes. After installing a newer version of my OS.

One item that I found helps a LOT is once you get your server configured and it's working and life is good execute the following:
$cp /etc/samba/smb.conf /home/config/etc/samba/smb.conf

And I'd recommend doing this with ANY configuration file you have to tweak - back that sucker up. Makes reconfiguring it after an OS failure much easier. Not perfect, but easier.

If your system is set up with inetd to run automatically (on boot) then when you kill the process, it should restart on its own. If it does not restart on its own, then you will need to locate the file which does start it and run that file.
