Hi experts,
we are using CVSNT 2.0.41a on a Windows2000-Server together with WinCvs
1.3.b17 for a c++-Developer Team.
The installation worked fine and the developers don't report any errors or

Another team is using WSAD Version 5.1.1including eclipse 2.0 with a CVS
plugin which seems not to be compatible to this new server version- since
it produced massive error messages while committing modules to the new
repository version.
On an eclipse platform faq-list I found the hint, that for the use of CVSNT
2.0.41a with eclipse I could use the "advanced" option "Pretend to be a
Unix Cvs version".
Now my questions: What impact has this enabling of this option? Does it
interfere with the options i should use for the WinCvs-Users?

Your help at this question is very much appreciated.
