I would like to protect CVSROOT folder in my repository.

I give NTFS permissions for users (read, read & execute, list folders), but
clients recieves: "permission danied for history file" and some options
doesn't work good (for ex. update by tag)

When I give write permission to CVSROOT all is working good, bur users can
change my admin files such as config, loginfo, notify ....

I have lockdir directory outside my repos.

I using CVS with ntserver protocole.

System: W2K SERVER

CVS: beta 3 (build 44)
