Thank for reply.
But before I insalled samba by hand, as follow:
-download samba source (.tar.gz)
-unrar with tar command
-build with ./configure
-install with make

-Then I configure /etc/samba/smb.conf by vi.
-Then I create users with password.

Issue I met when start samba as I wrote before:

root at maychu1 home]# /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start


 Thank you & Best Regards,

You probably do not have the samba package installed. You can do:

rpm -q samba

If no packages are listed, do:

yum -y install samba

This will install the samba package which contains the /etc/rc.d/init.d/smb script.

Instead of running the script directly, it's easier to do:

service smb start
