thanks for your info.

I already downloaded CVSNT from www.cvsnt.org but was mislead by some 
statements on the www.cvshome.org and the IBM WebSphere Redbooks.  I 
believed it couldn't be used in a network environment but for local use 
only (to test it).
        http://www.cvshome.org/dev/codewindow.html (first 2 par.)

There are two ways to run CVS on Windows 95/NT. The first is as a client, 
talking to a CVS server on a Unix box. This is the recommended setup and 
is commonly used.
The second way is known as "local" or "non-client/server" CVS. This lets 
you run CVS if you have only Windows machines. However, due to issues (a) 
with local CVS on Windows, and (b) with the suitability of Windows as a 
server operating system in general, we would generally recommend this more 
to try out CVS and get a feel for it rather than for production use. 

 2) IBM Redbook
        somewhat same text +
        "...CVS providers generally recommend using the 2nd option only if 
you are evaluating CVS to get to nkow its functionality and not for 
production use..."

a bit confusing, at least for my.  Furthermore I asked same question to 
"webmaster at cvshome.org", who didn't even reply!
