On Knoppix (debian-based), the services can be started and stopped using
the init scripts located under /etc/init.d.  Typically, I invoke the
following to restart a service:

  sudo /etc/init.d/smb restart

Replace 'restart' above with 'stop', 'start', 'status' (to see if it is
running or not already) or with no options to see what other options are
