difference between "service smb restart" and "/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb"
What is the difference between
service smb restart
/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb restart?

I've never seen /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb restart, but /etc/init.d/smb restart. In any case, the point is that both effectively do the same thing, but the "service" way is more Red-Hat oriented, whereas /etc/init.d is used more by Debian and derivatives. Both restart the SMB service through the distributions init scripts.
