If both server and client are Windows then choose SSPI.
Look in http://www.cvsnt.org/wiki how to install and setup the server by 
the first time. The "cafit CVS Administration guide" is a good document.
Just create a test repository and play with it; it's easier than you appear 
to think.

TortoiseCVS has the most simple and intuitive interfase I could imagine... 
just right-click on a file to perform any action! Certainly it has bugs as 
any other program, but you wont find any at this stage - it works, just 
keep trying.
