If you do not alter the separator you use in sed as the example medvedd provided, you have to escape the '/' in '/n' which is done using the '\'
sed -e 's/\/n//' <filein >fileout

The separator can be almost any character as long as you use single quotes(') to enclose the pattern double quotes (") will have the shell process the contents and replace characters that have meaning $,!,etc.. (hedging since I have not tried all options)
