What I meant was that I read into your reply that maybe CVSNT was
distributed with Ubuntu and was installed and therefore I wanted to
know how I could check that. For example where could I find the Ubuntu
version of the Windows CVSNT control panel in order to configure the
CVSNT server?
I hoped that configuration eiter was done automatically or that there
is now a better way than finding some obscure text file and open it in
a non-obvious editor (nano or vi or the like) to change the contents
to get it going. I never could come to grips with the linux way of
doing things inside text config files with no help whatsoever as to
correct syntax, available options etc....

But I guess it is still the same way.
