These seem like questions that would have very obvious answers, but a

cvs [commit aborted]: your apparent username (Ninji) is unknown to this

(Where Ninji is my windows username).  I have the "use local users
instead of domain" option checked, and at this point this is all being
done locally.  Any idea why it isn't authenticating?

When specifying a remote repository as follows:

How would I go about specifying a repository with a driveletter (i.e.
"C:\blah")?  The hostname/port runs into the path since it doesn't begin
with a slash in Windows.  Once again, seems like an obvious question but
I couldn't find an answer.
