I think the way you should start out is :

1. Create the CVSNT repository from the CVSNT applet
2. If you are the admin (check CVSROOT/admins file - enter your user id
there and make sure your NTFS permission on the repository allow you to
create folders) import a new module. You can leave it empty for now .. 
3. From your dos box, checkout the module (you'll just get the one empty
4. CD to that folder (yr local sandbox). And issue the command 
path_to_cvsnt\cvs.exe -d:pserver:....(full CVSROOT path) chacl -R

This gives EVERYONE (who has NTFS read/write permissions on the folder)
read, write and create permission. That means they can create folders and
add new files. You can restrict this to individual user names too, just
substitute default for that user name. 

Hope this helps ..
