I use Pageant and PLink. Pageant is a program that supplies private keys to programs like
PuTTY or 
PLink.  You can get them fom the Putty website.  I create a public key using Puttygen, and
upload it 
to my account and put it in my .authorized_keys file or wherever it belongs.  I load the associated

private key into Pageant.  After that, it all Just Works, provided my CVSROOT is set correctly:

I also need to put plink.exe in my path, and then set the CVS_RSH env var to "plink.exe".

After that, things like Eclipse or the cli win32 version of CVS work correctly.

If you need any more help just ask.
