Very strange connection string, indeed.
Why do you have the c:/CVSROOT part there????

Normally a connection string would look like so:
  :pserver:Andy at NEW-P4:/repository
where /repository is the name of the repository as served by CVSNT.
CVSROOT is a reserved word and should never be used in this context.
Have you by any chance put your sources into a *subdirectory* of the
CVSROOT directory? In that case a lot of problems will happen...
