I am trying to get CVS to authenticate using system passwords on a LInux box 
that uses MD5 password hashes.  According to the documentation, cvs should 
use systems passwords by default.  I have always turned the feature off 
(SystemAuth=No) but I have need to turn it on for one machine.  However, when 
I set SystemAuth to "Yes" and remove my entry from the CVSROOT/passwd file, I 
cannot log in.  Is this caused by the use of MD5 instsead of crypt?  Am I 
missing something simple?
