Agreed. But I'm not currently subscribed, and throught that there would
likely be someone on this list who'd worked through the installation.
Appreciate you taking the time to answer my query, though...

No, admittedly, I did not read the INSTALL stuff. At the time I posted, I
had stripped ViewCVS off my system and was looking for some guidance before
I proceeded with a re-install. I googled on the topic, and read through the
online ViewCVS content, but didn't see anything by way of explanation other
than some generalities.

I have ViewCVS install now, in the localhost 'root', so I'll read the
included docs carefully.
