Unless it would be better to use CVSNT or WinCVS as Larry suggested....

What are your thoughts on the relative merits of CVS, CVSNT, and WinCVS? Why
would I choose one over the other? What are the negatives of each? Which of
these integrates best with Eclipse?

Yes, I tried that and it didn't work in IE: I got a message about a problem
with an HTTP Redirect.

When I tried the download with Firefox it worked fine, which was a relief. I
never have problems with downloads so I hadn't even thought of using a
different browser; I just assumed there was a problem on the CVS server. Of
course now I'm concerned about why IE won't download from CVS and am
starting to wonder if I will start having problems with downloads from other

I can't download the docs via IE either so I'll find the latest cederqvist
and download it via Firefox.

Thanks for pointing out that the browser could be the problem!
