Using Eclipse with CVSNT is well documented in the eBook "All About 
CVS".  That book is included with CVS Suite.

That's normal.  It should respond with something like this before 
booting you:

cvs [server aborted]: bad auth protocol start:

That means you are talking to CVSNT server, and it doesn't like what you 
had to say.  If you get another message then you should check for AV or 
firewall interference.

You can purchase CVS Suite (with the eBook) from the March-Hare website.
