Samba doesn't do data conversion of any kind.. Ftp, however,might be
converting from Unix text format to Dos text format if it's in text mode
instead of binary mode.  Is this a text file created in Unix that you are
trying to open in a Windows program?  Or a file you uploaded to the Unix
server via ftp and thereby converting it?

They hang the man and flog the woman
That steal the goose from off the common,
But let the greater villain loose
That steals the common from the goose.

If I copy a file locally from a samba mount and download the same file via
FTP the file sizes are different.  The FTP file is correct where as the
copied file is an incorrect format.  Although I can't see a physical
difference, after writing to tape you can see that each record is shifted a
space.  Is there any setting to control the data conversion across a samba
