okay, thanks to you all... But, I am a bit disappointed that I had to make this much personal contact with all of you to get this information which I think to be relevant for a lot of people (everybody that has a CVS server wants to know what's in it, at least, that's what I suspect) and also a lot of people that have cvsnt installed actually run it on windows (as you would suspect for cvsNT). And to get viewcvs up and running on a WAMP system without screwing around to much is a pain in the ass. So as one of the lucky users of CVSNT I would like to see this information clearly explained on the website or for example: the FAQ. Because, like I just explained, there are a lot of users that will encounter these problems. Or if you could just explain that the CVSNT repository isn't compatible with CVS and/or it's tools...
