I think you got confused with my query,

Let me explain my req in detail,

I have created two real accounts on the server say cvsadmin and cvsuser.

After creating these real accounts I created CVS users 
Using the cvs passwd command
Eg : cvs passwd -r cvsuser -a charlie
Eg : cvs passwd -r cvsuser -a scott

So, here my query is how the users "charlie  or scott " can change there
passwd which I set initially ...

My reference : http://ssi7.cs.tamu.edu/ssi/tutorials/cvsNt/addUsers.pdf

Hope this makes my query simple to understand ,

You don't.  

SSPI uses the user/password you logged into windows with.  You should
also (almost) never use "cvs login" with SSPI.  

Just use "cvs logout" then everything will work magically and never
login or specify a password again because your local windows client
passes the token from your session to the server for authentication.
