Trying to set up a Win2000 cvsnt-2.0.2 repository on an application server.
Loaded cvsnt and installed it.  Well really IT did.
 Added a couple of repositories to test things out.  The folders are
properly created, but not the associated repository files.
No error messages, seems happy, everything but files.  Running with
ntserver only enabled.  Checked prefix and repository
names, everything seems fine.

 Went back to a NT4 system in my office on a local network where I am
allowed to safely play, and it worked effortlessly, just
like it had before.   Created both the files and the repository when I
added a new repository.  The NT system is configured
a little differently because it has both Windows and Linux clients.

The Win2000 system is on a corporate network, so they do not let me get
near it, and the IT folks are not really orientated to
software like this.  The understand business software, not development
software.  They let me run my stuff as long as I do not
phone the help desk!  They are willing help in any way that I request.   I
had IT create a new test repository just to see if all the
entries were correct, everything seemed file.  The outcome was the same
with no files, but with folders created.

What are the questions to ask IT?  What kind of things in the configuration
could cause this to happen.  Did I miss something?
Can I 'cheat' it in by copying the repository files from a 'clean'
repository on the NT system to the Win2000 system ?

IT said "Why don't you phone their customer service", so here I am!

I am not a NT or Win2000 IT guy, I am really an embedded engineer.  Any
assistance you could give me would be appreciated.
