I want to transfer some file from WinNT to a Samba server by drag and drop.  However when I view the file from the Samba server by using vi, it shows up ^M at the end of the sentence.  Can anybody tell me if there are any resources or what I should do in the Samba configuration in order to get rid of this ^M problem.

In the MS-world the lines have both CR and LF at the end. In UNIX there is only LF character so vi shows the CR as ^M. You can use either dos2unix and unix2dos utilities to convert CR+LF<->LF or use 'tr -d \r < file.txt' to remove the ^M characters.

Maybe I did not make myself clear on the question.  I want to see if there is anyway to make it in the Samba configuration file instead of converting the explicitly in the UNIX prompt.

No, samba can't do it.
Samba does not know anything about file-contens, it just implements the SMB protocol, that's all.

You can try to program something using samba's preexec and postexec entries.
