I need to find out the easiest method of generating a point grid, with points at a uniform and specified distance from one another, along line transects and be able to have each point registered with an identifier and a lat/long to be uploaded into a GPS unit in order to conduct surveys for endangered species of plants.  Thanks...

Have you tried Hawth's tools? It is a free toolset with lots of helpful tools for environmental analysis. There is more than one way to do your task, but Hawth's Tools might be useful for you in other areas: http://www.spatialecology.com/htools/tooldesc.php and this tool should do what you want: http://www.spatialecology.com/htools/regpnts.php
