It certainly should not! ;-)

I do have a repository set up and thanks to Bo I've discovered what the 
problem is.

I set up a directory in e:\cvstest (a NTFS drive)
but I had a valid repository of '/' which I've been told by Bo is not 

So when I set it to '/test' it all worked.

So I have to ask why CVSNT allows illegal locations to be entered which 
produced this weird '--allow-root in inetd.conf' error?
