Well, I seem to be able to completely hose up CVS when I use a script
to delete every .class file, for example, in a directory.  I'm sure it's
newbie user errors...

Other than that, it wasn't too hard to set up..  If you ever try and
have problems, let me know.  I'm no expert..but I'm getting competent!

Now, just need that stinkin cable modem :)
