Hi there too!

CVSNT is the default CVS that comes with WinCVS.  

You can download the latest installer from:

Automatically updating a sandpit is probably best done with the command line.  
eg: from the directory where you have checked out your project:

cvs update

That's all there is to it.  If you are running windows you can automate this 
with the standard "at" command, on unix you can use "cron".

If you want to use cvs to download the cvsnt sources you would use:
cvs -d :sserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvs login
cvs -d :sserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvs co -r CVSNT_2_0_x cvsnt
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvs login
cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvs co -r CVSNT_2_0_x cvsnt

So the CVSROOT is :sserver:address@hidden:/usr/local/cvs
