Usually each person has a username to log into the windows PC and this
username and the windows authentication token is used automatically if
you use the SSPI protocol.

If you are using 'login free' PC's then you'll need to get more advanced
in your setup.  If a 'per pc' login is adequate then you could just
rename your guest account on each PC to a better name.

Please supply more information with your next post (server, client,
cvsnt version on client - not the wincvs version - it's a GUI and uses
cvsnt for the work, cvsnt version on server, CVSROOT connection string,
etc etc):
