    I'm using Eclipse 3.2 and have to install CVS to run via Eclipse. If
    anyone else is using CVS w/Eclipse and knows where to obtain CVS and
    instructions to set it up I'd appreciate it. It is very unclear using
    Google searches where CVS for Windows/Eclipse actually lives. Thanks
    in advance

    If Eclipse doesn't come with a custom CVS client, which I thought it did but
    I'm not expert about Eclipse, you could either download Cygwin, which includes
    a nice command-line cvs client and a whole bunch of UNIX utilities ported to
    Windows, or any of a zillion clients that you can google up.

    There's a CVS server product called CVSNT. That's all I know about it.

    CVS's so-called "Cederqvist manual" is available from:

    Kinda old but still good tutorial.

    CVSNT is here:

    Unless you somehow installed an extremely stripped down version of
    eclipse (and whether that exists or not I dunno) your eclipse install
    should have a CVS client installed already. Check Window->Open
    Perspective->Other and you should see a perspective called CVS
    Repository Exploring. You may also check out from CVS by creating a
    new CVS project.

    If you don't see any of these... I'd suggest reinstalling eclipse.
