RE: (Newbie) Problems using "cvs2svn" on Windows, with a CVSNT repository

It is pretty easy, just download the setup and run it. It installs just
the "base" install by default. I had to do this anyway because the
cvs2svn requirements said you need a GNU "sort" program and that is
included in Cygwin.

I recall that RCS might not have been included in the base install so I
just selected it too.

I then just added the appropriate bin folder with the executables to my
path so that the scripts would find it. Once I did that it all worked
great.
