when you boot, add  single  as parameter to the bootimage at LILO prompt,
then you may disable samba via the rc-scripts, then reboot

Please elaborate your answer.
I am a beginner and do not have any experience in Linux  or Unix.

When booting, you get a prompt
LILO:
at this prompt you may hit the TAB key to list the avaialble boot images,
choose one  (usually linux or vmlinux), type at the prompt
           linux single
then linux should boot without network, you get a shell prompt as root:  #
cd /etc
depending on you distribution you must now modify the startup scripts, they are
/etc/rc*  or /etc/init.d/*
 probably you have a /etc/rc.config  (or somthing similar), then you just need to
comment out the appropriate setting for Samba (for example SMB_START= )
Then reboot, either by hitting  Ctrl-D or using:  init 6

BTW, linux should startup anyway, even if it didn't find any network
takes time ...

Sounds that that you have configured for a sophisticated network (DNS, mail, etc.)
This causes some processes to do a few retrys 'til they timout.

Veryfy and (re-)configure you network settings.
