Please, remove NFS from your CVS setup ASAP.  I was doing NFS between a 
repository and a linux working directory, and many, many files got corrupted
(strings of null characters, line breaks added or subtracted, etc...)

I switched over to the pserver method and the problems have disappeared.  
is very easy to set up and more importantly, will preserve the health of your
files.  NFS, especially across platforms, is a recipe for disaster.
