You'll need to determine which runlevel you're you boot into, which can be seen 
in /etc/inittab in a line that looks like `id:3:initdefault:`.  The 3 means the 
system boots into runlevel 3.  So in /etc/rc3.d create the symbolic links to 
your smb script that you used to start samba

ln -s /path/to/smb K01samba
ln -s /path/to/smb S98samba

the K is for the shutdown
the S is for the startup
The numbers after are the order in they are executed.

An ls -l in the rc3.d directory will show already installed scripts looking like
S90crond -> ../init.d/crond
