d:\cvs\systemmgr is not an ideal cvsroot... as Glen said earlier, set up an
alias using the cvsnt control panel applet (e.g. \systemmgr) that maps to
your physical root (i.e. d:\cvs\systemmgr) then get your clients to refer
to the respository via the alias.

FWIW, /d//cvs/systemmgr is not the same as d:\cvs\systemmgr (but it was
under earlier versions of cvsnt).
