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!!!
