If the file resides on a CD, as I think, it could be copied over to the HD
andconverted there. Also, there are options to the mount command to do the
conversion on the fly - I have never used it, I'm just mentioning the
posibility, or even that the automount has done some thing of the sort

conv=b[inary] / conv=t[ext] / conv=a[uto]
The fat file system can perform CRLF<-->NL (MS-DOS
text format to UNIX text format) conversion in the
kernel. The following conversion modes are available:

binary no translation is performed. This is the

text CRLF<-->NL translation is performed on all

auto CRLF<-->NL translation is performed on all
files that don't have a "well-known binary"
extension. The list of known extensions can be
found at the beginning of fs/fat/misc.c (as of
2.0, the list is: exe, com, bin, app, sys,
drv, ovl, ovr, obj, lib, dll, pif, arc, zip,
lha, lzh, zoo, tar, z, arj, tz, taz, tzp, tpz,
gz, tgz, deb, gif, bmp, tif, gl, jpg, pcx,
tfm, vf, gf, pk, pxl, dvi).

Programs that do computed lseeks won't like in-kernel
text conversion. Several people have had their data
ruined by this translation. Beware!

For file systems mounted in binary mode, a conversion
tool (fromdos/todos) is available.
