Apologies and thanks...

So: Since CVS is evidently running as Guest (there are no entries in the
event log to contradict this) and the user account specified in
CVSROOT/passwd is also Guest, how can it be that CVS is able to modify
read-only admin files whose ownership is Administrator:Administrators?  For
example, the `modules' file has the properties:

-r--r--r--    1 Administ Administ     1170 Jan 30 10:29 modules

After I check it out, modify it, then commit it:

-r--r--r--    1 Guest    Administ     1186 Jan 30 12:51 modules

Am I missing something really obvious?  The fact that the group remains
`Administrators' rings alarm bells.  I'm just trying to get a better
understanding of what's going on here as I only have a rudimentary knowledge
of Win2K and Unix file permissions.
