How did you install it in the first place? What distro do you run?

Its always better to supply more details so that people can help you.

Ah...well as root you can uninstall it by (If I remember correctly):

rpm -e (package name)

if you're not sure of the package name, you can do:

rpm -qa | grep samba

and it should pop up the exact name you need.

(BTW both of those have to be done in root).

Hope this helps.
