Just check out shutdown scripts. If you are using RedHat (I do, so the
examples come from this system) first check the numbers in the names of
symlinks in /etc/rc.d/rc.0 and /etc/rc.d/rc.6.

You can also write a short shutdown script which unmounts samba shares
before other actions are taken (e.g. /etc/rc.d/rc.0/K01smbumount symlink
that points to the /etc/rc.d/init.d/smbumount script written by you)

Hope this helps.
