installation login problem

    I'd like to post a problem I'm having with the Windows command line cvs.exe installation.  I have done the following already:
1. added cvs.exe to C:/cvs/bin and added this bin to PATH
2. set CVSROOT environment variable to :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs
Then when I try to login to the netbeans server the following happens
 > cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:address@hidden:2401/cvs
CVS password:
cvs login: failed to open Z:\ /.cvspass for reading: No such file or directory
cvs [login aborted]: fatal error: exiting
Is there more the installation process than simply copying the exe to a bin directory and setting up a few environment variables?
We are using Samba here so I logon to windows through Samba and my windows environment is located on the Z drive(linux home directory).  From the output above I get the impression that cvs.exe is attempting to treat this as a unix file(the forward slash in Z:\ /.cvspass).
