Hi everyone!!!
1) How do I add watchers?  Is it that each person who checks out the file
must themselves add a watch, or is there a way an administrator can
designate a whole group of watchers for a file?

each person adds themselves.
if the admin understands the format of a couple of control files per directory in the repository, the admin could hand (vi/emacs) edit the files, I however advise against that.

2) How do I configure CVS so that the appropriate watchers are emailed (as
the literature seems to imply)?

IIRC as long as mail/sendmail works correctly on your server[1] it takes care of itself.

[1] assuming you have a couple of cvs users named user1 and user2,
if you can login to the server and do
echo "a test message" > /tmp/mymail
`mail -s "testing mail" -c user2 user1 < /tmp/mymail`
and then get complaints from user1 & 2 about getting unsolicited test messages, then mail/sendmail is working.

3) How does one perform merges between branches using TkCVS?
4) For some reason, when I am using TkCVS on certain servers, all of the
buttons for different options (checkout, branch/merge tools, etc) are "faded
out".  What might I be doing wrong?

a question and two sugestion:
Q: is that a windows product?
S1: if it is, you may want to ask on the cvsnt list:

S2:find the list for TkCVS and ask on that list too, as this list is MOSTLY knowledgeable with command line CVS.
