Python, licenses and CVS

With all this discussion of CVS, I have a question that I've not been able to
find a satisfactory answer to, myself.

My current place of employment does not use any significant form of version
control.  Due to the nature of most of our codebase, using CVS for it would
be unrealistic anyhow.  Despite all of this, I would like to begin using CVS
for those projects that I can, even if I'm the only one using it.  The
problem with this, is that I don't have access to a Unix/Linux server to
install CVS on (our one Unix server is host to our virtual-OS (non-SQL)
database, and I don't think I could convince anyone to install anything
unnecessary there <wink>).  What I'd really like, is a version (or clone) of
CVS that will allow me to use a local repository under Windows.  Does any
such thing exist?  (I'm very frustrated, trying to teach myself good software
engineering practices in a workplace that doesn't support that at all... )
