[Samba] Problem with smbmount

I have a problem with my samba shares.
I have a server with samba installed on it (3.0.7-Debian).
I have workstations under wxp and workstations under linux.
I have a common share which looks like this :
available = yes
valid users = user1, user2
comment = Repertoire Archive
browseable = yes
write list = user1, user2
writable = yes
admin users = user1
path = /home/archives
user = user1, user2
force user = root
I connect my wxp to the share without problem and
can read/write. Of course all new files are created
under the "root" user as requested by the "force user"
I can connect my linux to this share using
mount -t smbfs -o rw,username=user1,password=xxx //server/Archive /mnt/server/archive,
(either using smbmount does the same behaviour)
I can do all the read I want, but I can't make any write.
It looks like my workstation get confused by the rights.
If I go in a directory where the user1 have RW access, I can
create a file, and it is automaticllay given to root (according
to the option "force user"), but I can't make any write
where the user "root" is the owner of the directory.
It works well under Windows XP workstation, it does not works under linux
workstation (which is a Kanotix/Knoppix/Debian distribution), that's
why I think it's a problem with smbmount/mount -t smbfs
Any idea ?
