php mail form help or stage2.img readonly file system help

Hi everyone, i need help on figureout some things:

I did a web page based on php (my first php work) wich prompts the users
of my site few questions to determine keyboard type, partitions, w2k
existence, users to add and some additional stuff, to send them back an
email with instructions on how to self kickstart their new linux box
with the ks.cfg file attached.
It works fine except when you try to save the attachment with IMP (the
web based mail client) where the file comes out with cr/lf line
terminators (the win/dos txt format), and naturally the installation
doesn't come as expected.

The code to attach the file in my php script could be the problem (even
if it works fine with netscape, pine and evolution).
The attachment is made in a workaround style (because i don't know the
way to do it yet)

			---Please don't laugh---

$mimehead   = "MIME-Version: 1.0\nContent-Type: multipart/mixed;\n
$mimetxt    = "This is a multi-part message in MIME
text/plain; charset=us-ascii\nContent-Transfer-Encoding: 7bit\n\n";
$mimeattach =
application/octet-stream;\n name=\"ks.cfg\"\nContent-Transfer-Encoding:
7bit\nContent-Disposition: inline;\n    filename=\"ks.cfg\"\n\n";
$mimeend    = "\n------=_NextPart_000_0061_01C17435.88E285C0--\n";
$fd        = fopen ("tmp/".$nomefile, "r");
while ($linea=fgets($fd,4096)) {
    $message .= $mimetxt;
    $message .= $header."\n\n";
    $message .= $footer;
    $message .= $mimeattach;
    $message .= $attach;
    $message .= $mimeend;
fclose ($fd);
mail("$mailtoaddress", "$mailsubject", "$message", "$mimehead");

		--I said don't laugh--

Or it could be on the IMP it self.

Anyway, as a workaround (the second, just for reference) i thought to
put the "col" command on the %pre script to cleanup my unlucky ks.cfg
file, but when i try to loopmount stage2.img to insert this new command
i can't do anything because it complains that the filesystem is

Please help.!!!

btw i would love to share my work if someone is interested.
