GNU Emacs, CVS, DOS and Unix

Hi there,

I have a problem I have not been able to handle with browsing newsgroups
and reading the manuals.
My Problem: somewhere between Emacs, CVS and Samba, when I check my
files in

(1) there is a newline conversion, appending ^M 
(2) the file privileges get changed, causing script files to lose their
executable status

I can remove the ^M's (and save) or not, when I refresh cvs-status,
PCL-CVS claims that the file is Up-To-Date.
I would like the file and it's rights to stay unchanged. I just can not
figure out where between Win-Emacs and it's CVS mode, Samba and CVS the
Problem lies, and how to stop it.

I am using the Windows port of GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-msvc-nt5.0.2195), 
together with PCL-CVS (which I do not know how to determine the Version
I connect to a CVS 1.11.2 installation on a Redhat9 linux machine, which
I access via pserver. This CVS server has no fancy wrapper functions or
anything, it is more or less freshly installed out of the distribution.
The files I use are on a linux machine to which I have access via Samba,
and are Unix type files (I use C-x RET f unix to force Emacs to save
them as Unix files, and have Emacs set up to create Unix files for new

Any help would be appreciated!
Friendly Greetings
