    Finally here is one I can answer. I still consider myself as a novice
    so many of the questions are beyond me. This is your problem: MS and
    Linux handle end of line differently, though I don't remember which is
    which. If you use Samba, the file will not get converted properly.
    There are two ways I know of to fix the problem
    1. use FTP in ASCII mode to transfer the file
    2. fix Samba transfered file on Linux side using pico.

        pico -w yourscript.cgi

        ctrl +o to save it

        ctrl +x to exit

    Hope this helps
