If they're both CVSNT repositories then you only have to copy the
files over, then tell cvs where it is using the control panel.

It should work for Unix repositories, too (For those, you have to be
careful with tar options as winzip can mangle the repository).

We currently use NTLM rather than Kerberos, since that's supported
with NT/Win95.  MS don't tell us much about the encryption, other than
it's either 64 or 128 bit depending on the clients/server settings.

Requiring encryption is one of the things that's added in the
development branch (although that isn't ready for deployment yet).
