Thank you for your reply. I do not have control over the CVS version on the
Linux server i.e., cannot upgrade it nor replace it with CVSNT. If I use the
remote CVS server, a signifcant functionality of the conversion tool would
not work. I am looking for specific answers about the changes in repository
file formats between CVSNT and CVS 1.11.xx so that I can account for those
changes in my process ..

That is *ancient* -- the current stable release is 1.11.22!  I strongly
suggest you update.

I used CVSNT as my local CVS server.

Big mistake.  As you've discovered, CVSNT repositories are *not*
compatible with regular CVS repositories.  You either need to redo the
conversion using a regular CVS server (you could use your Linux server
rather than a local server) or you need to use CVSNT on Linux.
