Of course the OS implied is windows (2000 Professional to be exact). 
Moving across a network means that I am dragging the file from my
computer to shared folder on another computer, both computers being in
the same domain.  This is just a plain text file.  Then I open the
file that I transferred using notepad, make some changes to it and
save and there are no linebreaks at all in the text.  all the lines
are jumbled together.
