To be honest with you, I can't remember if I've tested samba since I
switched to debian, but it used to run fine under linuxppc. Check
your /etc/samba/debian_config. It's probably running out of inetd, so
you won't see it in ps unless there's a connection. If you're having
trouble connecting, I recommend going to the samba website and looking
at their troubleshooting instructions. They're quite good and will
lead you right to the problem at hand.
