I'll make a suggestion, but it may not help, or even work correctly.  I
don't know enough about cvs' disk usage and other underlying functions.

If your repository is small enough, you might be able to mount your zip
disk as a filesystem and have your $CVSROOT point to it. (this is of
course, assuming that you're using some OS that supports mounting
filesystems)  I seem to recall that zip disks/drives have some feature
that you can set some kind of lock that won't let you eject the
might need to use that.

This implies lots of things that might cause problems...most that i don't
even know of.  Perhaps the guru's on this list can take this idea and
point out its flaws/potential?
