Not really - but if you did this then you will corrupt your repository
and lose (years) of history.  This has been documented over and over and
over again with CVS 1.11, CVS 1.12 and CVSNT 2.x.  Do not do it.  

Download a copy of the latest CVSNT server and install on the server (I
am assuming here that Netware is sufficiently similar to Windows or
linux that that will work - if not then you'll need to move the files to
a windows or unix/linux server and setup a CVSNT server on unix or

The company I work for develop CVSNT and I know from time to time people
