I am trying to use the cvs.exe for intel on the webpage.
From a dos box (on a windows me computer), I get the following when
I try to do a cvs login:

c:\cygwin\home\davis\keynetica>set CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvs

C:\cygwin\home\davis\keynetica>c:\mybin\cvs login
(Logging in to address@hidden)
CVS.EXE [login aborted]: could not find out home directory

What gives?  How do I have a home direcotry on windows?

You may need to set an environment variable to tell CVS which directory is your home directory. Alternatively, it could be looking for a particular directory path, such c:\home\jdavis for example.

I personally use WinCVS, and have found it quite good.
