Ok, here's the problem I am having:

I had WinCVS running on an old Windows machine, and I had all my source code in it's repository.

I have since dismantled that machine, but I backed up the repository.

Now, I have a new machine, which is dual booting Windows and Mandrake 9.1.

I have copied the old repository into the Windows partition. I have not yet installed WinCVS back on the Windows partition, but I have installed CVS and gCVS on the Linux side.

I would like to access my old repository residing on the mounted windows partition from within gCVS on the linux side and as well from WinCVS (when I get it installed) on the Windows side.

Now, I installed gCVS and told it that it's CVSROOT was where my old CVSROOT has been placed on the mounted windows drive, but it does not seem to detect or use the repository there... all my files still show up as NON-CVS....

How do I get gCVS to see my old WinCVS repository?
