mount filesystems

   $ mount -ub \\\\samba\\public /public  # mount as user and binary-mode
   $ mount \\\\samba\\tux /home/tux       # mount as system and text-mode

unix and dos modes

Unix uses binary-mode: files are handles as they are. dos uses text-mode: Line-endings of text-files are converted to .

When working on dos then use text-mode as default.

When you mount a filesystem you can specify if you want to use test- or binary-mode.
