No. cvs running on your Windows box does not know how to use ftp to
get to the working directory. 

One solution to this is to use CVS to get a local copy of the files on
your Windows box, and work on them there. 

But maybe there is a compiler or some other tool that only exists on
the SCO box? Then get an NFS client for Windows, and mount the disk.
Then pcl cvs will work on the NFS mounted directory.

Or, get an X client for Windows (Cygwin has one), and run Emacs on the
SCO box, with the display on the Windows box. This is probably the
best solution.
