The CVS NT server has its own web page and README, you might try checking


6. Connecting from Unix or Mac clients 

  To connect from clients which don't understand NT drive/directory syntax, 
  an alternate syntax is available using double-slash (//) instead of the 

    set CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/d//cvsroot

Disclaimer: I have never tried working with an NT based CVS server.
