i am familiar with the method, but will it retain the line feeds?

Are you using SQL 2005 SSIS importing from a Text file:
Edit the source connection for FlatFiles, and change the Header Rows delimeter.

this is SQL 2005 but not SSIS, simply right click on dbase | all tasks | import etc etc.

i've done flat file imports before, but still unclear as to what char code translated into a line feed

Using the wizard is similar to SSIS :You will have the option to select the Header Row Delimeter:
Semicolon {;}, and so on & 
Systems based on ASCII or a compatible character set use either LF (Line feed, 0x0A) char(10) or CR (Carriage Return, 0x0D) char(13) individually, or CR followed by LF (CR+LF, 0x0D 0x0A).
If you change the Header Row Delimeter to something else (depending your file) it will import the ASCII  newline or LF to fields with line feeds.
