try this inside vi


:1,$ s/.$//g

That should strip all of them. (beware, this strips that last character of each line, so if any
lines do not have the ^M,  you will need to fix it)

If you wanna specify a range of numbers, that is the first paramter.

:1,$  is the entire file (line 1 to the end, I think % also works as well)
:1,10 is lines 1 thru 10 (and so on)

in vi it's:

:% s/^M//g

where you type  ^M  as Ctrl-V followed by return.

rickyr, this is not a samba problem, but one of the file format and/or the program your're using to look at the file. Most newer vi versions have a
   set textmode
to do this conversion automatically.
Also check if you have dos2unix, d2u, or equivalent.
