Question How to start Samba server in SuSE?

I am trying to run SuSE 9.1 now, having run RH9 previously. I need to start the Samba server, but can't figure out what to execute. I am familiar with the conf file and it is setup, I just can't get the server running.

From the command-line
/etc/rc.d/smb start
/etc/rc.d/nmb start
Or using YaST, select the Runlevel Editor, and change the server status of smb and nmb to start in your current runlevel.
