IIRC, Vim is just VI iMproved so you should be able to use :w <filename> or just :w or :wq.
w = write
q = quit
Google's first link on a search of VIM commands got this link for further reference.
Generally speaking, most startup scripts are found in /etc/rc.d directory(ies). It depends on the layout of the Linux (having never used TSL I don't know it's layout). The script is nothing more than the commands needed to start the daemon, in this case Samba. Basically you need a line that would be the command you'd run (e.g., /sbin/smbd -D). Take a look at this script. It should have the answers you need.
You need to look into using Google (or other search engine of your choice) to find immediate answers like this. Then, if things don't work, ask.
