There have to be links in /etc/rcX.d to /etc/init.d/smb
X is the runlevel. The link is normally named something like S94smb or K06smb where S means start, K means kill and the number is just for ordering the scripts.

If you have these links and it doesn't work have a look at the skript /etc/init.d/smb . there is probably a check for a variable which is set in a config file.
On SuSE Linux this is START_SMB in /etc/rc.config

The correct way of doing this under redhat is:

chkconfig --level 35 smb start

i tried schlonz's way but managing all those links proves to be a headache  with j2's answer it is fast and simple....although the actual command line is:
chkconfig --level 35 smb on


in the future a lot of experts would be less grumpy if you didn't post answers so fast...  as this allows others to jump in with help and suggestions.....
thank you for your time and effort.

OH! you're right about the "on". I reedited the source to "service" a year or so back, because i was (at the time) so aggrevated over the fact that it was "on" even tho the prefix in the scripts is "S" (for start) so i thought that "start" would be more apropriate.. so my service handles both "on" and "start".

Sorry for the confusion.
