CVS Setup

I am going into an environment that uses CVS. They have it installed on a unix server, and I need to setup my windows computer to access it, but I do not know what all I need to do. Looking at one other computer that has this, I see a few things:
There is an evironment variable set and there is a file called .cvspass in the users home directory. Can I just copy this stuff to the same directories on a new computer, or is there something that I need to run to set up the new windows computer?

RE: CVS Setup

The nicest way I've found to access CVS from Windows (apart from if you're doing it directly through an IDE) is to use [link http://www.tortoisecvs.org/]Tortoise CVS[/url]. That will add CVS options to the right-click menu on Windows Explorer.
