I'm confused. Do you have one machine involved in CVS, or two?
Here you mention a client running the CVSNT Server (and lock server)...

You only need to install and start the CVSNT services on the CVSNT
server. At least the most recent version of WinCVS is available with a
CVSNT client. On the client machine, you only need to install that
combination of WinCVS and CVSNT client.

Yes. You can do that, but you don't have to do that.
Incidentally, are all the machines running Windows 2000 or higher (but
not XP Home), and are they all in a Windows domain? If so, you may wish
to use the SSPI protocol rather than pserver - it's much simpler to
configure and manage.
