smbd and nmbd are NOT USER-LEVEL APPLICATIONS. They're
configure-and-forget system services. Do you know where the messenger
service in Windows (NT|2K|XP) is installed?
Go look in /etc/init.d/, there should be a startup script that knows
where these services are. SWAT will be started in xinetd
And rpm will tell you where things are installed, if you give it the
right set of parameters. I suspect that if you give it the right set
of parameters and /path/to/filename, it will even tell you which
package that file belongs to.
And no, I don't know what the switches are off-hand. You'll have to
read the docs...
