I submitted the message below to this list a couple weeks ago and never 
got a response.  I got distracted by another issue and am just now 
getting back to CVS.

I'm new to CVSNT, and in fact CVS.  I've installed CVSNT on a RHEL 4
platform and am trying to access the repository locally through
Eclipse.  I can't seem to get beyond logging in.  I keep getting
"Authentication error: Incorrect user name or password"  I must be
missing something very fundamental.

Any ideas?
