WinCVS sucks. You really should try TortoiseCVS for if you're using
CVS from a Windows-box: http://www.tortoisecvs.org/

Have you tried using Subversion (SVN)? In ways, it's much similar to
CVS, there are just some things that are different. I generally prefer
SVN over CVS, although I do find CVS suitable for some things.
Subversion: http://subversion.tigris.org/
There's also a TortoiseCVS-'clone' for SVN, TortoiseSVN:

Turtles are always fun! =)
