Just after the package install, the daemon is launched. You will have to make
a :
/etc/init.d/xxxx stop

Some daemon come with a /etc/default/xxxx file in which you can set a
parameter to no,false,... to not launch the daemon at boot time.

May be samba comes with this sort of file and i can't test now.
