Thanks. > You need to read up on CVS... There are links to various sources of information on my page at: http://w1.858.telia.com/~u85831169/InstallCVSNT.html You can start by reading this very good tutorial: http://cvsbook.red-bean.com/cvsbook.html Here is another that helps if you use WinCvs as your CVS client. (Note that CVSNT is a *server* and a command line tool, but has no GUI part.) http://ikon.as/wincvs-howto/ A PDF formatted user's manual for WinCvs can be downloaded here: http://easynews.dl.sourceforge.net/sourceforge/cvsgui/WinCvs-1.3.pdf Note: the CVSROOT folder contains important administrative information for CVS, but you are *NOT* supposed to edit any of these files in place!!!! You MUST check out CVSROOT to a sandbox and edit the files there, then commit your changes via CVS from the sandbox. Don't ever look into the CVSROOT folder directly... /Bo (Bo Berglund, developer in Sweden)
