The unicode server setting is on the advanced tab of the control panel
on the server.

By default the client does (and usually should) use the codepage of the
client, or you can use -O to disable the conversion (eg: cvs -O co fred)
- however that is really not advised.  If you want the client to run in
UTF8 you should be running windows client in UTF8, ie: 
cmd /u
cvs --utf8 co fred

The help is in 'cvs --help-options'
