1) with WinCVS you are running CVSNT (originally derived from a cvshome
version of cvs)
2) with cvshome CVS, the client and server are normally built in the same
binary. I think it is the same with CVSNT.
3) .tar.bz2 files that have been tar'ed together and bzip2 compressed. Usually
source code files.
   .tar.gz files that have been tar'ed together and gnu zip compressed (I
think winzip can read them). Usually source code files.
   .ps post script file
   .asc PGP/GPG signature or signed file (allows for verification that you
downloaded what was intended)
   .sig PGP/GPG detached signature against the same filename without the .sig
   README text file begging to be read.
   .pdf Adobe Portable Document Format. Text and graphics in a format that
most people can get a reader for.
4) as you are working on windows, and probably most of your team is as well
from the way your question was asked, CVSNT is probably a better fit. Looking
at the CVSNT page might help you decide.
