Don't know about Linux vs NT but it took me about 2 days to move a team of 3
developers off Continuus and onto CVS. A lot of it will depend on how
familiar you are with source control in general and what state your existing
processes are in: you may find you need to start changing your development
processes once you start getting things under source control. 

However, at its simplest you just:
1. Create repository
2. Import source code
3. cvs checkout
4. cvs update
5. cvs commit

Repeat 4 to 5 until time to go home.

I everyone.

I work in a small but still growing company and we're beginning to 
need something like CVS...

the problem is that nobody here has ever used CVS (nor any of its 
pairs) and one person only (me) is familiar with VSS, on user side 

I would really appreciate you giving me an approximation of the time 
it would take to install (and get rid of every problem) and get to 
know CVS, knowing that we're 5-6 developpers working under windows 
NT4 to 2000. Is it worth hiring a temp. or consultant to install and 
teach us?

would we have to stop working while we put CVS up or can one of us do 
it while the others go on with the developpement?

Is it really better to use linux on the server or are the winNT 
versions good enough?
