We did set up a cygwin server here, and it works well.  I just have a
few questions about it.
	1.  When we do cvs -d :ext:server:/...  from a remote machine,
we need to enter a full path; it doesn't use the repository prefix I
setup in the control panel.  Is there a way around this?
	2.  Also, when entering a full path, we cannot use a ':' in the
path.  Ie:
		cvs -d :ext:keith at server2:/e:/network/g-drive/cvsrepo/
<---does not work,
	instead, I am forced to use a file share. Ie:
		cvs -d :ext:keith at server2://server2/g-drive/cvsrepo

Incidentally, sorry for the slow reply; our mail server has been up and
down (mostly down <g>)

Not sure what you're saying here...  You set up sshd and ran it?  In 
that case as long as cvsnt is first in the path it should work OK.
