Save yourself some grief and follow Bo's suggestion. Use a repository prefix to mask drive mappings. Your clients don't need to know or care that its on your c drive. I followed Bo's advice and created a folder on my d: drive called cvsrepo. so my repository is at d:\cvsrepo\CM. I put d:\cvsrepo as the prefix so my clients just need to specify cvsroot=:pserver:user at machine:/CM Very Clean indeed. Thanks again Bo!!!
