I'm not a pro either, so don't take the answers for godgiven ;-)

a) You don't need a Win2k Server. Any workstation in your LAN is fine. 
(works for me, no drawbacks noticed)
b) I believe the (artificially-Microsoft-introduced) 
10-connection-buy-our-overpriced-server-software-limit applies to shared 
folders ONLY and this only with non-server versions. Anyway, with 16 
users chances are you'll never encounter 10 simultanous accesses, since 
cvs connections are not of a permanent nature.

Good luck, Wolfgang
