Did you set the workgroup in the config file /etc/samba/smb.conf
(then restart smb and nmb services)

Sorry, you mean you are missing actual config applet I misunderstood. . Do:

yum install system-config-samba

Do you have samba swat installed?
yum install samba-swat

Check this:
http://www.samba.org/samba/docs/man/Samba-HOWTO-Collection/SWAT.html

Did you enable it in /etc/xinetd.d/swat (and restart network services)?
By setting
disable     = no

Then restart xinetd
/etc/init.d/xinetd stop
/etc/init.d/xinetd start
