Install samba

I try to install samba on Mandrake 8.1.
I should insert a line in /etc/inetd.conf, but I have troubles with that as I have no such file.
I tried to use kfind, but it makes my machine extremely slow, so that I cannot even kill X or restart Linux.
Where can I find inetd.conf or should I prepare an empty one in /etc?
Besides, I get several messages that inetd service is not running.
How can I start that (I may have missed something during installation of Mandrake).

you are using xinetd instead of inetd, so the conf file does not exist, but then samba is a standalone service, so you shouldn't be involved in anything else like xinetd. i'd assume you'e just got hold of some very old docs there.

You can either have the inetd manage the samba dameon when a request hits your computer or you can start samba as a daemon and keep it running. I'd suggess to startup smbd on startup from a script in rc.d and let it run. No need to mess with inetd.conf. Or in the screwed up RH world xinetd
