The old CVS used to store the executable flag on the file itself. NT has no such flag, so it loses all that information - this is unfortunately unavoidable. If you set the flag under Linux and commit a new revision CVSNT stores this information in the RCS file so it'll keep it (at least until someone commits from an NT machine). Tony
