Firstly ensure you are running the latest stable release of CVSNT:  Make sure your Linux client has been upgraded to CVSNT as 

You have named your repository with a name that is illegal in linux.  In the 
CVSNT control panel on the windows server the repository has a "physical" 
name and a "logical" name.  it looks like your "physical name" is probably 
e:\cvs\CVSROOT.  Change the "logical" name to something like "/wellsfargo" 
and then use that name:
cvs -d :pserver:hostname:/wellsfargo login
