starting services in Suse 8.2?

I have just installed SuSe 8.2 on a machine on my home network. Everything is running well except I cannot figure out how to automatically start Samba and the Lisa KDE network browser daemons at startup.

I had a hell of a time getting my Network printer to work on my wife's WinXP PC from SuSe until I figured out that smb and nmb were not started automatically. I have no idea were this is buried in the SuSE configuration setup.

This is SO much easier in Redhat, were a services menu item allows me to select the services to run. In Slackware I know were the config files are to edit manually. This is just not very intuitive to me in SuSe.

Any help would be appreciated for this new Suse user...

Yes, it isn't intuitive. I think you need to look at Administration - Yast2 Modules - System - Runlevel Editor. Hopefully, that will help.
