Make the matrix a huge string.  Then use the string manipulation
commands to remove the commas and brackets and insert return
characters.  Write the string to file.  Note that in Mma3.0.0, the file
I/O is very slow, much slower than in Mma2.2.  This is remedied in
Mma3.0.1.  Perhaps the Mma3.0.0 patch might help.  You can get a patch
from Wolfram, but it is not on their website, so you have to call them
up.
