[Samba] Incorrect format of Text

I am running Samba 2.2.8a on Solaris 8, and have shared out a directory
containing some simple text files.

The issue I am experiencing is the following:

If the files are FTP'd from the Unix box to a Windows machine and opened
using Notepad, the formatting is correct.  If the same files are either
opened directly or copied (from the Samba share) from the Unix box to the
Windows machine, and again  opened in Notepad, the formatting of the file is
completely messed up.

I have noticed, looking at the properties of the files from the windows box,
that there is a size difference between the files that are FTP'd and those
from the Samba share.

I am sure this has something to do with it.

One of those files details:

File through Samba share reads - 3.24 KB (3,319 bytes)
The same file Ftp'd reads - 3.37 KB (3,451 bytes)

Any comments on where I could start (besides getting rid of Windows) would
be appreciated.
