Go for ViewCvs

It won't be possible due to permissions.

CVSWeb is not actively developed for quite some time.
ViewCvs is still going on but curved over to SubVerion about 1-1.5
years ago and changed its name to ViewCV at that time.
I have created an easy-to-use installer for ViewCvs per mid 2005 which
is published here:
I use it all the time on new installations and it works quite well
right out of the box. Not so if you try to do a manual install...
Last time around it was on a brand new W2003 server where I installed
CVSNT buid 2382 in October of 2006.
