Hi Arthur,

Guess this is my mistake but because of NT, I thought that CVSNT was a
Windows version of CVS :) Look like I was wrong. So basically it is an
improved version of CVS? 

If I upgrade the server to CVSNT, my repositories will be intact?

Can this problem be caused because the client and the server are not the

I can checkout the code without problems in Eclipse.

And how would I check RCS files for corruption?

That error is coming from the server.

I recommend you check the server RCS files for corruption then upgrade
the linux server to the linux version of CVSNT
