Not really....
But it ain't hard, just install cvsnt on your Linux box according to the
general instructions for tha platform.

Then move the repository over from Windows and get going.

The first things you'd want to do is to adjust your CVSROOT scriptfiles
to suit the Linux environment.

Apart from this I don't think there is much else to do.
But I have not installed on Linux myself (don't even have a Linux box
so I might be wrong about the ease of migration...

And by the way, you are much better off keeping this discussion on the list
because there are more experience there, for example concerning Linux.
So do not reply in private, please.

	If you install CVSNT on Linux (do not use GNU CVS) then you can just
	move the repository files over from Windows to Linux and get going. 
	Note that you might have to modify the CVSROOT/*** files since the
	script format may not be the same on Windows and Linux.
	But you need not worry about the actual source files in the
	repository, they are the same format no matter which platform.
