Hm... NT has a concept of home directory.  Win95/98 doesn't.

The first thing I would try to find out, is where CVS looks for the
.cvspass file when it doesn't have a home directory.

If I couldn't find any information about this, I would try setting the 
HOME environment variable to point to the NT home directory in the
autoexec.bat file.  If that didn't work, I would try putting the
.cvspass file in C:\.

If that didn't work either, I would be fresh out of ideas...:-)
