    smb may not be the correct name.
    Try samba, or look in /etc/init.d
    for the name of the script that starts the service.

    install samba package

    eg -

    yum install samba

    samba package has the samba deamon and service scripts

    you must install samba package

    then try

    # service smb start as root user

    I had the same problem but solved now. You might not have SAMBA service installed on your machine. Just install it with "yum install samba" and then start the service with "service smb start"
