I use cygwin on Win32 with success.

On your Windows box you need to:

1. Install cygwin.  Be sure to be sure to select the cvs and openssh 
packages when you install, in the "Devel" and "Net" categories, 

2. Set some Win32 environment variables.  I do this in System Properties 
 > Advanced > Environment Variables, although you can also do it in 
c:\autoexec.bat, or probably in other places.

Set CVS_RSH = ssh.

If you want to use CVS from tools other than a cygwin shell (e.g., 
Emacs) then also put c:\cygwin\usr\bin on PATH.

3. From a cygwin shell, use 'ssh-keygen -t dsa' to generate a key on 
your Win32 box.  Leave the password empty if you want to not have to 
type one everytime you use CVS.

4. Append the contents of ~/.ssh/ on your Win32 box to  Make sure this file is not 
readable by others, as otherwise ssh will refuse to use it.

5. Try "cvs -d co jakarta-lucene".

You can also setup Putty to use your cygwin-generated private key.

I hope I got all that right!
