I looked at your question more closely and you don't have Samba server installed.  /etc/samba/smb.conf is the client configuration file.  The server file would be smbd.conf

Which linux is this?

apt-get install samba-server
yum install samba-server

You you have samba server installed, you should be able to configure it and start it.
