There are a few options for that.  If you want per-client default, look at
the ".cvsrc" file information in the docs--you put that file in your home
directory and it provides default switches per operation (I believe, I don't
actually use it).  If you want the repository to affect the change for all
users, then look in the repository at the "cvswrappers" file in CVSROOT.
There are other options, of course--the GUI front-ends (TortoiseCVS, WinCVS,
et. al.) have other methods as well.

having to append -k options for each add or commit command each time? Is
there something I can do as an administrator to change the behavior of
the CVS server so that keywords are never substituted?

binary files, and I also still want the automatic line-end conversion to
canonical form in the repository (we use CVS both on Windows and Linux).

Any idea how to do that? I read something about "admin -k" but that
seemed a bit vague (especially with respect to my previous line just
