Where I work, we use Linux on the server side and a mixture of Win32 (mainly) and Linux on the client side.
There are no problem with text files (e.g. .cpp) as long as they are stored as text. CVS will automatically check out with LF on Unix and CRLF on Windows.

I recommend to store .dsp and .dsw as binary, also to prevent CVS from attempting to merge them.

If you do this on Windows, it will work as expected. On Linux, those names of course refer to two different files. CVSNT handles this issue completely transparently in my experience.
