1) You should upgrade.
2) The smbclient utility will do what you want. Use the "translate"
command at the command prompt. (I don't know why the help message says
that this is for printing--it does what you ).
There is no way to know which files are text and which are not, so the
smbd daemon is not the right place to perform such conversions. Your
options are to use smbclient to manually translate the files as you
move them, or to use a simple conversion program. There are a lot of
them. I believe that many MS products convert from Unix format to DOS
3) The question really doesn't belong on the Samba Tech mailing list.
This list is primarily for discussions concerning the deep technical
aspects of Samba and the SMB protocol suite.
