Jim -

To save you some wasted effort, this will _only_ work if you do it from the 
Linux side.  If you play with the EOL's on the NT box, it will go back to the 
original CR/LF line ending when you check out the files again.

Tony - any chance we could get a way to fix this?  The global "Unix line ending" 
parameter is a very dull tool...
