I have the following two questions for which I need some help : a) How should we delete a complete module form a respository ? Do we need to stop the cvs server ( xinetd ) Is it just removed by rm -rf <dir>.
If you really want to remove a module that is correct. Hope you will take backup before that.

Upon starting te xinetd or the cvs server , will the server not realise that there is some change in the repository and complain about the same ? I have been trying to find out about these things, but have got no answers till now.
No, you need not stop or restart the server to remove a module. Even if you do that the server will not crib
that a module is missing.

b) We ususally access the CVS Server ( on Linux ) from the Windows 2K prof box by using WinCVS 1.3 or 1.2 Once a user logs in via WinCvs, it retains the seting sin the preferences Tab. Now, if I change the user name from user "xyz" to user "abc", we can see the change in the preferances tab, but when we click the login option., we still see the old user name in the "OutPut" box below and WinCVS is asking for the password for the old user. I usually overcome this by a) Logging in though command line or b) .cvspass file. - Only sometimes this solves this problem. not always. Alternatively I have to reinstall WinCVS on some Windows box, for the new user to log in.
Although  this question is wincvs question, here is the solution:
After you change the username in preferences tab and clicked OK, put your highlight on someother folder that you had it before.
Then do admin>>login. It will definitely ask for passwd of new user.
