You'll have to indicate the "access method" that cvs must use,  e.g.
pserver, ntserver or - in your case - local. (See Cederqvist chapter 2).
The presence of the colon in the NT-drivename is mis-interpreted as a part
of an "access method".

Your cvsroot should look like this: CVSROOT=:local:H:\

I want to use CVS on a WINNT network. I normally work in UNIX environments,
and I am not that familiar win WINNT. I have downloaded cvs and I want to
set up a repository. I have a drive on the network (H:\) which I want to

So I set CVSROOT to be "H:\"
and call cvs init

I get the following error:
cvs [init aborted]: no such host h

So cvs thinks H is a host. Can somebody help me?? I cannot set the
repository to my local drive, since more collegeaus have to work with it.

Thank you very much,
