Very strange,
I am running cvsnt 2.0.5 on an XP-Pro machine and when I use the
Control Panel applet for CVSNT to create a new repository it is
normally created and all files are put in CVSROOT just like they
And they are *not* hidden or system, just readonly.

I really suspect that this guy has a problem with the security
settings not allwoing the creation of files in the repository tree.
Might be a policy setting that the IT department has put there.
