  Martin> On a windows computer I can't make a .cvsignore file

I've had similar problems creating a .cvsrc file, also for use
with Tortoise.  File Explorer and Notepad would not permit me to
name a file with a leading `.'.  I worked around this by creating
the file with a different name, and using the command prompt to
rename it.  Once it was created, I was able to edit it with
notepad without problems.  I put the file in:

    C:\WINDOWS\Documents and Settings\$USER\

I should have thought that being bored stiff three quarters of the time was an
excellent preparation for working life.  -- Sir Humphrey Appleby.
