To install the server:

a) Install cvsnt
b) Go to the Control Panel and open the CVS NT console
c) Add a repository in a directory in the server machine
d) Install the service
e) Start the service

To allow users in NTServer mode:

a) Add all the users that need to use CVS to the machine
b) Check permissions im both the repository directory and
   the temp directory to acertain that those users can
   read/write that directory

To install clients:

a) Create a new system environment var in the client
   computer as:


	Servername is the netbios server name in the network.
	If netbios isn't in use, it can be the ip of the
	server machine.

	local_repository_dir is the same directory as the
	one used when creating the repository in the server.
	For instance, if the repository was created as
      F:\CVSROOT, then, it should be used F:/CVSROOT (mind
      the slashs, because it can be needed to invert them
      or use double slashs '\\' - i used as stated and it
	worked ok).

b) After that you just need to use a CVS client and when
   needed, select ntserver as protocol, in the server use
   again the server name or it's ip address, and as the
   repository use the same used in creating it.

At this point, i've used the tortoiseCVS client with sucess
at creating and mantaining a CVS tree, and i'm sure this
setup will work with other clients as well.
