no, to the repository; it might be on any machine on the Internet. 
I think this kind of path only works for machines that you log in to (prolly
a Unix machine).

username 'alexp', loggging in to machine '' to gain access to
the CVS repository on that machine that is to be found in directory /cvsroot
(there might be several repositories on that machine).

I'm sure you can access local disks containing repositories; though I don't
know how to do this under M$ os's.  Under Unix, CVSROOT sould contain the
path to the repository.
