Ok so far...

We don't know anything about cvsnt.  You won't get much help here.

That doesn't make sense.  A repository would contain ",v" revision
control files and those are not suitable for a web site.

Maybe I follow.  The Tortoise menu to "make into a module", or some

There's also a "CVS / Add Content" if you right-click on a folder.

That's the repository.  I hope.

What file is unchanged ?

Now I'm lost.  Why are you changing files on the server ?

I *think* you want to run your web site off a checked-out sandbox
and that you want that sandbox to be updated automatically whenever
someone commits from any other sandbox.  The Unix way to do this
is documented at

but I don't know the Windows equivalent.

It may be that you are trying to solve two problems at the same
time.  Forget the web site for a moment, can you get CVS to work
between the three developers and the CVSNT server ?  From your
posting it is not clear that you did.
