Samba - smb files

I found this tutorial "Setting Samba in 10 min". It says there that command "/etc/rc.d/init.d/smb start or stop, or /sbin/service/smb restart should do this functions. But this doesn't work for me. Wrong dir. I don't even have "rc.d" dir. Where should I look for this samba files? In samba dir all i have "gdbcommands" and "smb.conf" file.

I'm running Ubuntu LTS 6.0.6.1

For linux-like systems these scripts are usually located at "/etc/init.d/service-name"
