You *must* make sure that cvs.exe is on the path in your PC, otherwise
it will be impossible to use the command line in the simple way we
show you. Of course you can type the full path to whereever you have
inbstalled cvs every time but the simpler approach would be to add tha
dir to the path...

Exactly what do you mean by this statement???
How do you "go to the repository"?
And how do you look at the last revision?

Again, *how* do you "go to the server and look"?????
