To start/stop/restart/status samba, you use the command:

/usr/sbin/samba  action

where action is start or stop or restart or status. However,
the Usage clause refers to the command smb, which does not
exist. The Usage clause should say:

Usage: samba {start|stop|restart|status}

Actually, the '/usr/sbin/samba' is just a copy of the
/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb script, which explains the message.

In any case, a quick cosmetic fix will be in the next
Raw Hide samba package.
