SAMBA steb 5b-Need help understanding

Linux lingo.....
I have no idea how to actually set up the deamons. It says create a script but i can only create basic text, it says to make it executable, doesn't work on the basic text(although it doesn't say failed when I do it)
Can someone please explain this step to me assuming I know nothing, which is about the truth. I'm running slackware 9 like the little box says

To start the server as a deamon you should create a script something like this one, perhaps calling it startsmb.

/usr/local/samba/bin/smbd -D
/usr/local/samba/bin/nmbd -D

Then make it executable with chmod +x startsmb

You can then run startsmb by hand or execute it from /ect/rc.local

Thank you so much
