Wrong.  You've not specified a valid server and the args are wrong for
CVSNT, see these examples:

> [root at localhost cvsnt]# cat PServer
> Repository0=/usr/local/cvsrep/
> Repository0Name=/usr/local/cvsrep/

Do not set your 'alias' to be the same as your physical path - it
defeats the point and reduces security.

Yes - read the manual.
