I have no problem opening windows mathm 2.2 nbooks in linux mathm 3.0.

Only trouble i have converting 2.2 Windows notebooks to 3.0 Linux format
is some of the packages have changed names in mathm 3.0.
I'm not on my pc right now, but i think you click one of the small top 
squaresin the pop-up box and the convert button at the bottom is 
highlighted, then you click on it.

The dos CR-LF versus unix LF doesnt seem to be a problem.
