Have you tried ViewCVS (or ViewCV as it is called now?).
I have a painless installer where you can install it very easily. Ity
uses the ViewCvs state back in June of 2005, but it is pretty rock

Look here:

It will take you about 10 minutes to get going if you have a running
IIS or Apache server and CVSNT installed.
