Are you using NT or 2000? If you're using 2000 you can probably do what
you want. A drive can be mounted at mount point on another NTFS
partition with the disk administrator (so a drive could be mounted as
c:\cvsroot). In the W2K resource kit there is a program called linkd
which actually creates symbolic links between directories which could
mean that you could mount z:\some\path at c:\cvsroot.

I'm not sure, but perhaps /cvsroot would then be interpreted as
c:\cvsroot and /cvsroot could be anywhere you want.
