I don't think that CVSWeb is compatible with CVSNT any longer.
According to what I know the only compatible web browser that you can
use with later CVSNT versiosn is VewCvs.
I have publised a simple installer for ViewCvs that does about
everything you need to do to get it up and running with all te bells
and whistles except database support (which I don't need).
You could alwasy give that a shot:

And the reason for the incompatibility lies in the inability of the
RCC 5.7 tools (10 years old by now) to parse the expanded RCS file
format used by CVSNT...
