Let me make sure I understand you.  You changed the system password for
a user named "User", and you can now log into CVS from the client
machine using that username and password, right?

I don't understand what you mean by this.  Do you mean you added a new
entry to the sytem password file with the same uid as User, or that you
added an entry to the CVS passwd file ($CVSROOT/CVSROOT/passwd) with the
third field set to User?  If you're talking about the CVS passwd file,
it would be helpful to show us exactly what it contains.

SystemAuth defaults to "yes".  If you want to disable it, you have to
*uncomment* the entry in the config file ($CVSROOT/CVSROOT/config).

Tell us exactly what you did, in detail, and exactly what error messages
you get.
