I am using the same config as you do (SSPI over Internet). My client 
computer is not part of a domain nor does the server.
To set up the users, you will have to create new user accounts on Windows. 
You can also create a special group for them (e.g. "CVS Users"). The access 
rights to the repository you can control by the user group permissions.
In WinCVS the you must use the same account name as the new account (also 
the password).

I don't want explain it to details, because I installed our server for a 
year and till that time i didn't touch it so maybe I am wrong in some 
details. But I could setup the server using the manuals on the CvsNT home 
page. I'm sure also you will be able to do it.
