SMURF ATTACK means sending forged ICMP echo request packets to IP broadcast addresses. 
See http://www.cert.org/advisories/CA-1998-01.html

LAND ATTACK means sending a packet to a machine with the source host/port the same as the destination host/port crashes 
a lot of boxes. 
See http://www.insecure.org/sploits/land.ip.DOS.html

IP SPOOFING See http://www.webopedia.com/TERM/I/IP_spoofing.html

Both SMURF ATTACK and LAND ATTACK use the IP SPOOFING technique
