Hi Wavelet

You don't need to add :pserver to the CVSROOT
text box in WinCVS.

Simply go to "Admin" --> "Preferences", a popup
window will appear containing several tabs. Take
"General", then

    in "Authentication"      choose pserver,
    in "Path" set            /cvsroot/Insight,
    in Host address set      www.itk.org
    in User name set         anoncvs

WinCVS will compose the  CVSROOT entry for you.

The CVSROOT entry will look like:


at that point you can go to "Admin" --> "Login".

Note that WinCVS also allows you to write the
classical comman line invokation. If you prefer
this, just go to "Admin" --> "Command line"
