Yes, it's the right file, /etc/samba/smb.com
When I rebooted the system, the server was in the right workgroup

Testparm give me this:
Load smb config files from /etc/samba/smb.conf
rlimit_max: rlimit_max (1024) below minimum Windows limit (16384)
Processing section "[store0]"
Processing section "[store1]"
Loaded services file OK.

        workgroup = NORRBRING
        map to guest = Bad User
        passdb backend = tdbsam
        domain master = No
        wins support = Yes
        wide links = Yes
        comment = store0
        path = /store0
        valid users = anders
        force user = anders
        force group = users
        read only = No
        create mask = 0644
        inherit acls = Yes
        comment = store1
        path = /store1

Which is absolutely correct.
