Samba daemons freezing at initialization time


i have a small problem with samba service under debian 4.0 etch distribution.
i modified the /etc/samba/smb.conf file, because i didn't reach everything i wanted.
And at reboot time, after grub window (where i choose debian booting), the processes start run, but when samba comes it doesn't continue the operation, so it freezes with this text:
"Starting Samba daemons: nmbd smbdeth1: no IPv6 routers present"

And i waited about 30 minutes, and didn't continue.
Ctrl+c, ctrl+d, pause/break button ctrl+alt+f2 didn't help for me.
So it doesn't reach the text interface so that i can configure smbconf file (e.g. comment the whole line).
So is it an infinite loop?

Here is the content of config file:

netbios name = samba24
server string = CAD architects, Stockholm, east 32nd st, 34th floor
workgroup = Workgroup
hosts allow = 127. 192.168.0.

comment = PDF Printer Service
printable = yes
guest ok = yes
use client driver = yes
printing = bsd
print command = /usr/bin/gsambadpdf %s %u
lpq command =
lprm command =

Is the solution just a boot live cd and reinstall?

Thank You!
