By default SSPI explicitly denies access to network shares.  This is a
security feature built into Win2k.  I strongly recommend not trying to
use a repository over a network share (for reasons discussed many times
elsewhere).  If you must, you need to give Security Delegation Privilige
to myuser* (for SSPI you can't just make up usernames, they must exist and
have login rights to the server, because the authentication is done at NT
system level not by cvs).


* Note that this is a security risk so you have to trust your users not to
abuse it.
