  This is more or less what I'm trying to set up, Checkout/commit over a small 
LAN here. Everything would be over shared drives, but I don't know how to setup 
the CVSServer, so if someone could point me to some documentation on this or 
any other help towards that end... The Repository would be on this machine 
which is Windows 98 (I should be able to come up with a more elegant setup in 
the future, but for now, I really just need this to work as it is.) With two 
other Windows machines accessing the repository. Anyway... Thanks in advance 
for any help...
