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
