When I implemented permissions for my group, I had to use NTFS 
permissions because of this -- and then I had to do an extra step after 
the normal ViewCVS installation to force authentication in order to get 
logged in.

I would imagine depending on the OP needs (since ViewCVS is RO anyway) 
they could set up a group that is authorized to access the repository at 
all, then use CVSNT ACL for the finer write / tag / etc. control within 
the repository.
