It's no different to any other platform.  The only NT4 specific stuff is 
secur32.dll.  It's part of the base image.

You can run cvsnt fine without it though.. I'm surprised you even 
noticed even if it was missing.

It'll be in the trace output in the worst case.

It does a checkout, so it'll build directories & add new files etc.  One 
thing that Bo noted was that it doesn't handle directories that exist 
purely in the modules file... that's true of all trigger scripts at the 
moment - it could be fixed for 2.6 at some point (might need a different 
syntax for 'module' though).

postcommand is called for all commands, not just server commands, and 
definately not just for things that change the repository.  Even 'cvs 
version' hits postcommand.

You can define it either way... the default is listed in the manual but 
the common syntax allows you to change it.
