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?

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..... > I would not use CVS on a Windows box, personally. I think you would be better off with SourceSafe or something.
