WinCVS with ssh password

I'm trying to get CVS over/through ssh to work from a Win2K box to a
repository on a RedHat Linux box.

I can log in from Win2K using ssh.  However, I'm having trouble getting the
CVS part to work.

The primary issue is that I'd like to force users to enter the password when
performing CVS actions (or doing anything else with ssh).  From what I can
tell, all of the instructions imply that you set up public key
authentication so that a password is not required.  I think I'd like to
avoid that.

When using WinCVS, I get the following response:
cvs export: warning: unrecognized response address@hidden's
' from cvs server
A DOS box appears, but it does not seem to wait for me to type in the
password.  It just fails and hangs, waiting for me to dismiss the DOS box.

When using commandline CVS, I get the following response:
' from cvs serverng: unrecognized response address@hidden's
Access denied
It's repeated 4 times.  It hangs until I hit Ctrl-C.

Two questions.
1. Does anyone know how to get it to let me type the password.

2. (OffListTopic) Am I being unreasonable?  Is public key authentication OK?
(I know.  It's an ssh question)
