What macro are you referring to? I regularly move between several 
CVSNT servers (e.g. switching so I can update/commit an existing 
sandbox to either the man office CVSNT server or the CVSNT server on 
my laptop when I am off-site), and regularly use a macro in WinCVS 
for this - the macro at "Macros -> CVS -> Chanage CVSROOT" in WinCVS 
is very useful for this. Is this the one you are using?
