	You don't realy want to run smbd and nmbd from inetd.  They are
normaly stand alone daemons like sendmail or named.  If you did the
install from an RPM, there should be file in /etc/rc.d/init.d to start

	Now, as for sending a SIGHUP to inetd, it will not cause a
change in the ps output - inetd stays running, but it rereads the config
file, so the changes you made take affect.

	Try starting Samba using /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start, and try
your test again.  If you still get errors, first make sure that nmbd and
smbd started ok.  If not, run the tests described in the docs to make
sure you don't have a problem with /etc/smb.conf.  Also check Samba's
logs to see it it is reporting a problem.  If that checks out, double
check your /etc/hosts.allow and /etc/hosts.deny files.


    Do not meddle in the affairs of dragons,
 for you are crunchy and taste good with ketchup.
