That's what the Repository Prefix feature is used for. In the CVSNT
control panel applet set your Repository Prefix to D:\, restart the
service and on all(!) your clients change your CVSROOT to
:pserver:beyers at fe046:/CVSRoot .

Note that there was a bug in CVSNT releases prior to build
57g which prevented you from using a drive's root as the Repository
Prefix without manual editing of the registry. If you are not already
using build 57g and also do not want to upgrade (I would recommend it,
though) you could search the list archives on how to do this.

Hope this helps.
