What a strange thing to do in a Windows box with CVSNT installed...
Why do you want to use cygwin's cvs and destroy the file line endings?
They are created by Visual Studio 2005 and so have Windows line
endings whereas cygwin presupposes UNIX line endings and will trash
your files into the repository...
