Sorry for bothering you guys again, but I am still messing around
with this problem; after I didn't in any way manage to get Samba
accepting my "force..." settings I am thinking about other means of
getting the job done, anyhow I wanted to check here again before
probably wasting a lot of time creating a workaround which might not
be necessary. So, in case someone knows about this problem, I'd be
thankful for any inspiration, and even a "force-doesn't-work-there"
would be _very_ appreciated. 

Thanks and bye,
