Some rough Windows instructions:

Install cygwin from http://www.cygwin.com/

After it installs, it will present you with a listing of packages to
install.  Search for "cvs" and install it, and search for "openssh"
and install it.  Also install any dependencies they need.

Generate SSH keys somehow.  Name the private key "id_dsa" and the
public key "id_dsa.pub".  Talk to Bert Bos to get your public key on
the server.  Put them both in your .ssh folder in cygwin.  Then run
"chmod 700 id_dsa" in that folder to change the permissions on the
private key.

Set some environment variables!  Right click on My Computer ->
Properties -> Advanced -> Environment Variables.  Add the following:

CVS_RSH => ssh
CVSROOT => :ext:[your w3c username]@dev.w3.org:/sources/public
HOME    => C:\cygwin\home\[your cygwin username]

Then continue from the regular directions, in the cygwin shell.
