Thanks James. I'm still experience problems unfortunately. When I try it, I get the following error:
C:\Documents and Settings\pmccarten\My Documents\Personal>cvs import -m "My Personal Stuff" pat/personal
cvs import: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
cvs [import aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.
  C:\Documents and Settings\pmccarten\My Documents\Personal>

When I look at my CVSNT Control Panel, it says I have the following repository created:
  Location = E:/cvs/repositories/pat
  Name = /cvs/repositories/pat
  I've also updated my modules file in the CVSROOT folder of E:/cvs/repositories/pat with the following entries:
  # The ROOT of it All
  # ---------------------
  All-Pat .
  # All Pat
  # -----------------
  Pat-Personal-All Personal
  Pat-Work-All Work
  There seems to be something wrong with my install, as it can't seem to find the repository. It always complains that no such repository exists. Like I said, I'm new to this, so hopefully I've provided the info you need.
  Thanks again for your help.

Subject: [cvsnt] First Timer - Confused...


I'm a first time CVSNT admin, and I'm a little confused by module setup.

I've created my repository with its only subfolder being CVSROOT
(CVSRepo = 
e:\cvs). My question is, what is the process for adding other files and 
folders into my CVS Repository? I'm assuming I'm supposed to create
in the repository and then start adding files, but I don't know how to
this. The documentation confuses me once I'm passed the point of
the repository itself. It seems I'm ready to go, but I don't know what
to do 

Sorry, seems pretty dumb but I'm stuck.
