I have never worked with a CVS repository. However, I would assume that that machine would be beefy enough to handle the load. As long as the network is stable then access shouldn't be too large of an issue. I would search opensource projects on Sourceforge and I'm sure you can find something that just requires Apache + MYSQL + PHP, and this will definitely run on a Windows XP box.

The code and content is about 1.6 - 2GB in total. What I need to know is what quality of machine we'll need to run CVS. 1. We'll likely be using a leased desktop machine (due to internal requirements) to host the code and the software. Will this be grunty enough? (2Ghz 512Mb RAM 40Gb HDD) 2. Do open source CVS solutions run only on *Nix boxes? Our pcs come installed with XP and it will be a 'challenge' to allow IT to let me blow the OS away to install a *nix distro. That being said, I've also never actually administered a *nix server..... Any advice welcome.
