Done, Win32 Release

There is no Linker tab...
Here are all tabs I can see:
Browse Info
Custom Build
Pre-link step
Post-build step

Because I am following the development and the time between releases
is way too long, especially for WinCvs.
And I want to get a CVSNT that is not depending on the DOTNET
Microsoft dll:s since they have been a hassle to install. I am now
going to include the CVSNT cvs.exe into the ViewCvs installer thus
making ViewCvs independent of the old RCS tools and also independent
of the age of the CVSNT installation it will serve.
But that really requires the VS6 dll:s...
Tony is only releasing DOTNET built files.

BTW I think VS user interface has a lot to be done to it, I really
wonder how anyone can use it on a daily basis...
