Are you sure about this, I can not get it to work.  I have SystemAuth=Yes
and created the admin file with my username on the first line followed by a
blank line.  WinCVS still tells me "cvs [admin aborted]: usage is restricted
to repository administrators".  I've tried various formats, names, and even
restarted the server once in case the service only checked for the file but
can't get it to work.

This is the only option for me as our IT dept will not give me Admin
priviliges on the server.
