Samba Configuration Problem

you do not have a problem. It works as designed.
Windows uses CR-LF (carriage return - line feed)
characters at the end of each line, while Unix only
uses a line feed character. The carriage returns
are shown as ctrl-m characters.
There are some utilities around that convert
ascii files from unix to dos and vice versa.
