What errors are reported in the log files when you try to start it?
/var/log/messages is a good place to look.
Does the network setup definitely work?
Can you start smbd?
You should be able to use either DHCP or a static IP but Samba likes to

this will have to be either setup in the /etc/hosts file or be available
