I'm not sure I understand your problem. CVSNT will preserve the case of
the files; it it doesn't then that is a bug and you should report it
here. If another tool is changing the case of your files, then that is a
bug in that tool.
Or, are you saying that when you check a file into the repository, you
want to later change the case of the file? If so, you need to remove the
old version (with the old capitalization) and then add the new version,
