Well, I don't know that I "can't do that", considering that it works just
great for me.  Though the editor that I'm using on my Win2k box (SNiFF+)
understands UNIX line endings and has an option to save as Win/DOS, Mac, or
UNIX line endings (which is of course what I have selected).  So my code
files get edited properly.

I assume that the client CVS program actually contacts the server CVS
program when a checkout or checkin is done.  So...presumably it is the
server CVS that handles the writing of the administrative files, so I would
assume the integrity of the line endings would stay intact (UNIX style).  Am
I assuming too much?

Unfortunately the two-sandbox thing doesn't work with the tools I'm using.
But since I seem to be perfectly functional if I choose to do one or the
other (local or remote), but not both, things workout fine.  I just wanted
to know if there was a way I could do both (have my cake and eat it too).
See...the other two people in my development team will only use Win2k but as
I'm very much a Linux person I'd rather have the option of doing both.  But
if not, oh well.

The biggest problem was that I tried getting each piece up and running
independently first than tried to get them to work together.  Usually is a
great idea to make sure two parts work by themselves first.  Who knew? :)
