Missing Samba

You don't give enough information to determine what happened to Samba, but you can easily install it again.

As the superuser ("root") issue the command "apt-get update ; apt-get install samba". That'll reinstall the Samba server and its required libraries and packages.

Running (it should already be installed) the package manager "aptitude" will allow you to view, search, install (etc.) other packages and/or Samba-related programs.
