First I gotta ask why on the same machine? For a single developer, the
primary purpose of a repository would seem to be redundancy. If you
have a second drive, a simple project Export will accomplish that.
>1) what version of CVSNT do you recommend I use with Eclipse?
The latest seems fine. Works for me. Actually, the question should
be, "Which version of Eclipse should I use with CVSNT?" since the most
recent problems seem to have been on the Eclipse side. ;) Which
version are you on?
>2) how the fields that must be set in the CVSNT control panel applet relate

For the repository location you want to use Name value from the
Repositories tab, not the Root value, i.e. no drive letter. The user
value you use depends on how you have pserver set up. Here's an
example using the simplest case of a single common pserver user from a
remote to the repository on goodgulf, as in the doc below:
:pserver:cvsuser at goodgulf:/CVS/Repository/test
On a local repository, I *think* it would be one or both of the
:pserver:cvsuser at localhost:/CVS/Repository/test
There's another setting that might apply, depending on the version of
>3) how do I set up pserver accounts with CVSNT -- because Eclipse only

I found this document useful: http://www.fredshack.com/docs/cvsnt.html
Scroll down to 'Using pserver authentication' and read it before
