You just said "I am using cvs (pserver) on redhat linux". That is the
server side. I'll assume you meant that you are running a windows-based

In any case, the client stores the passwords, not the server. Based on
your description above, it sounds like you are doing operations on the
client-side. Regardless of client platform, there should be a
$HOME/.cvspass file that is used as described above.
