Download Putty and install that one. It contains a key generator and upload
the public key as described. Have Pageant start each time you log in, and
in the cvs setup, tell plink be executed

Now make a login profile in putty which you name after your username and
server, like dude@nowhere.com if username is dude and server is nowhere.com

Start once plink with "plink dude@nowhere.com" if that was your profile
name and then, eacjh time you login, activate pageant and read in the
private key which you have stored somewhere. Then you may try plink again
and check you get in directly on the server. Exit and use svn freely. But
remember to reactivate key in Pageant each time you log in. If you in gthe
startup starts a batch file that run through all directories that are under
svn and do an update, also have before that, a reminder to enter the
password for svn login.

Echo Please remember to log in at PageAnt
cd project1
svn update
cd project2
svn update

etc etc
