On our Linux system, we mount the repository on the desired path. I
would think Solaris would be able to do it, too. All it took was a line
in /etc/mtab like this:

localhost:/u2/CVS /cvs nfs rw,addr= 0 0

In this particular case /u2/CVS is in a different filesystem, but I
don't think that's necessary (though using a filesystem other than root
is generally a good idea, IMHO).

Hope this helps,
