I had actualy  added a repository called test, the way you described, but
something must have gone wrong, so I deleted the repos. and added a new one
called Test, I have now a subdir in that called CVSROOT, so far so good.

after running the following commands in a dos prompt on the machine where
cvsnt i running, the results is this:
C:\>set cvsroot=:sspi:iserver:/Test

C:\>cvs ls -l -r
cvs [ls aborted]: the :sspi: access method is not installed on this system

The sspi_protocol.dll  IS located in the install dir, so it should be able
to find it (or am I wrong in this)
