You need to set the evironment variable HOME to the name of a directory 
on your machine in AUTOEXEC.BAT. Adding a line like:
set HOME=C:\

will do that. When you log into a CVS pserver CVS 
needs to create a file to kep the login details in. Unix programs use 
the home directory to store per user configuration.


PS. You will probably get better responses on the mailing list if you 
send plain text rather than HTML formatted messages. Replying to HTML 
e-mail is very hard if you have a text only based e-mail client as many 
people on this list do.
