I currently use RedHat Linux 6.2 as the CVS server, and multiple NT boxes as clients, so it sounds like your setup is very much like mine. If this mailing list is any indication, unless you are using RedHat Linux 7.0, CVS installation and setup should go quite smoothly. I had almost no trouble at all with CVS on Red Hat Linux 6.2, and I am anything but a unix expert.
With a Linux/NT setup, you can choose just about any protocol you want -- there are no hard and fast rules for which ones to use. If you don't care about security, you can just use CVS's built-in "rsh" protocol (simple .rhosts setup, no external programs are required). If you want some security but are not paranoid, you can use CVS's "pserver" protocol (simple inetd.conf setup, no external programs, but requires a password to logon). If you want lots of security, you can use "ssh" as an external protocol (I've never used SSH, but lots of other people have). Any of these protocols should work fine with your setup. The CVS manual discusses more about the different protocols and how to configure them, which might also help you decide.
I don't know anything about Cygwin, but WinCVS will work with any of the above protocols.
Hope this helps.
