Uploading to the Qube

I have now used Google/linux to find unix2dos and dos2unix .rpm files and installed them using

rpm --install

i.e. they were missing from the Cobalt build and somehow the ftp client I was using wasn't handling the conversions, so this should make editing my shell scripts using notepad &/or context on windows easier.

As I implied last month I have got to get to grips with the bourne shell again; I'm holding off on the Korn Shell. These editing techniques may help

I have also got to grips with using ftp/wget on the Qube. Its a lot quicker than using http and quicker than using other system as web clients for the fetch.
