Depends on how you are connecting remotely.  If using pserver, then
the answer is Yes, you can setup a passwd file in CVSROOT that
maps a CVS "user" into a system account.  You can setup a single
system account shared by multiple CVS users or you can have a
one-to-one mapping.  The CVS user is what get's logged as who
made the change, not the local system account that the server
used to run the CVS requests.  Take a look at
for some good information on how this is done.

I don't know about the other server modes for cvs -
