ok, im a cvs newbie so i think i have misunderstood how to use cvsnt with eclipse 3.x.

say i delete a bunch of dirs (and files therein) in my webroot dir. then i want to make sure that no one downloads those old dirs by mistake during an update. by first commiting those deletions to the repository, that should take care of it, correct?

eclipse cvs gives me all sorts of cryptic errors when i try to do sync & commit all of my dir deletions. so my questions are these:

1) what's the proper procedure for doing what i described above?

2) should i just use tortoise or something else since maybe the eclipse ide is messing things up or trying to be too smart?
