Tortoise CVS is not a wrapper for anything CVSNT - it is a simple CVS 
client frontend.  For user management, I haven't found any GUI tools, 
but you can always use the command line.

In the config file set SystemAuth to yes if you want the OS to take care 
of authenticating users (the passwd file then just lists the accounts 
valid for cvs access) or not (the passwd file then lists the accounts, 
encrypted password, and account alias).

cvs passwd deals with the passwd file.
cvs -H passwd for options.

Also, if you have multiple CVS clients installed, you'll have to make 
sure you're using the CVSNT one (cvs --version) because it's the only 
one that supports the passwd command (1.12 might, but I haven't 
encountered it in the wild yet).

This is the hardest server I ever had to setup. I just don't understand how to setup it... I've pass trough help files and FAQ on the net and I still don't understand. Where is the damn command line ?!?!? How can I remote acess ??? Is there any Gui to setup repository and users etc etc ???
