IIRC, you have to be a member of the Administrators group in your domain
in order to get correct authentication as administrator. Like a lot of
other things with cvsnt, its poorly documented, got to agree with you on
that... If I get some time in the near future, I might sit down and put
together a cvsnt/wincvs doc site. Its needed for sure. Bo Berglund has
put out some docs on getting cvsnt up and running, you find the link at
http://www.cvsnt.org, its worth checking out but does not cover this
