It's a piece of cake to install CVS server on Unix.  I
haven't had experience doing so on NT (you'll probably
need the Cygwin port).

In addition to getting past initial problems, a
consultant would also get you up and running with the
CVS way of doing things (in my experience, each
version control tool has its own set of quirks and
added features).

My guess is that, since you come with a VSS
background, the largest paradigm shift you'll need to
overcome is doing concurrent (rather than serial)
development.  Again, in my experience, making this
shift requires a leap of faith to get started, but
once done, users fall in love with the process.
