I have run into this problem a few times. Every time it was because I had downloaded
the "linux" file via Netscape Navigator (and then forgot not to next time). Netscape
does something to the file. What you want to do is ftp to the site where you're
downloading the files from and ftp down the "linux" file. Should solve your problem.
