or you could just leave the option out entirely, to get exactly the
same result:

  # service smb
  Usage: /etc/init.d/smb {start|stop|restart|reload|status|condrestart}

heh.  top *that*.


p.s.  i am a little annoyed that the usage message doesn't reflect how
you invoked that feature, instead referring to "/etc/init.d/smb".
that's bound to confuse a few people who will have no idea what it's
referring to.
