Many of the CVSNT server commands (like "cvs init") now do modify this file 
on your behalf - but our overriding design rule is to follow the standards 
for a platform.  So on windows things are configured with a control panel 
(just like all windows servers) and on Linux it is configured with  a text 
file in /etc (just like all linux servers).  We're extending this all the 
time - linux will continue to be command line based, but windows will start 
to get a few more graphical tools (with CVSNT 2.5.04).

EVS is different - it is going to be configured by a web browser regardless 
of the platform.  See evscm.org for more info.
