I don't think there is much difference between XP-Pro and Win2003 as
regards CVSNT and the sserver protocol. I compiled a configuration
tutorial that you can look at here:

it outlines the use of sserver too. Have you checked that you have
performed all the steps needed for configuration of this?
For example there is a "Plugin" tab on the control panel where you
configure the sserver protocol, have you done that?
Also, you need to start out with cvs login for a new sserver CVSROOT
connection string, did you do that?
