thank you. i will try to do that :)
out of curiosity (or desperation ;) I installed WinCVS just to see if it
could tell me anything

this is weird :

C:\Program Files\GNU\WinCvs 1.3>.\cvs co -c
cvsconfig    -a CVSROOT config
modules      CVSROOT modules

however i want to use the version but
that still tells me
C:\Program Files\GNU\WinCvs 1.3>h:\bin\cvs co -c
cvs [checkout aborted]: failed to open the modules file

could it be my CVSROOT environment variable is
C:\Program Files\GNU\WinCvs 1.3>set CVSROOT

other commands work ok though :(
