You probably need to generate a key and then you will also want to run
an agent to hold your pass phrase.

I suggest you start with a client that lets you generate a key. A list
that might work on your platform may be found here:

(these are non-commercial choices. If you want or have commercial
choices, feel free to web search for them. SSH.COM might work for you.)

For example, PuTTY read/download here:

Use PuTTYgen to generate a public/private key pair. Upload the public
key to the remote server, use Pageant if you don't want to be prompted
for your SSH key for every cvs command you issue and set your CVS_RSH
environment variable to point to PuTTY.

To be honest, if you are on win98, you will probably find a better place to ask questions about the
TortoiseCVS or WinCVS you are likely using and how it works with ssh.

        Good luck,
