Accessing a Linux CVS repository from Windows

   I am trying to checkout files from a CVS repository located on a Linux 
NFS partition, onto my Windows XP laptop.  I've read several user guides on 
the web for WinCVS, Tortoise CVS, and CVSNT, and they all mention that in 
order to do this I must have an account on the Linux server on which the CVS 
server is running.  However, I do not have an account on the server - is 
there any way to work around this and accomplish what I'm trying to do?  In 
the Linux environment, all I have to do is type "cvs co <module>", and I'm 
able to checkout files - I'd like to be able to do the same thing using a 
Windows client.  If anyone has experience doing this, I would really 
appreciate you insight.
