I am having trouble using cvs, emacs, bash, etc. on my windows XP machine.
My configuration is:

CVS: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11 (client/server)
Emacs: GNU Emacs 21.2.1 (i386-msvc-nt5.1.2600)\n of 2002-03-19 on buffy
Cygwin: not sure version, cygwin1.dll is dated: 2/25/2002
Ssh: (from cygwin): OpenSSH_3.2.3p1, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL

I have afs (version 1.2.2b), but would also be ok with using SSH.

If I can't set a CVSROOT to :local:f:/path (it complains about path not
being absolute)

Correct. Cygwin is a Unix emulation layer, and therefore does not recognize DOS drive specifications. CVSROOT should be :local:/cygdrive/f/path.

I can't set CVS_RSH=SSH, because cvs replies:
cvs [checkout aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if

        This is probably an artifact of your bad CVSROOT, yes?

(there are no error messages)

        Don't you get the bad CVSROOT error message?  Wouldn't that count?
