strangely, I have just discovered that these settings only work for the *anonymous*
CVS under windows, but not for my "real" login!  I get all sorts of crazy RSH errors
such as " directory doesn't exist"... very strange.  I just
double-checked my UN/PW in Linux and it works properly there, but it doesn't work at
all from Windows, even though the anonymous checkout works just fine (I just tested it

???  is there a fundamental difference between -d :pserver:  and -d :ext:  that I need
to understand first?

any advice appreciated,
