The tutorial told you to execute "cvs import" but you show us that you
executed "cvs commit". Either you used the wrong command, or you have
performed several other steps you haven't told us about: checking out
your working directory and modifying your files.

Double-check your environment variable CVSROOT, and make sure there is
no space at the end of it.

Think of the repository (c:\cvs and all its subdirectories) as a
system directory, that you should not touch until you have a thorough
understanding of CVS and how it works. CVS will manage all the files
in the c:\cvs directory.

The commands shown in "chapter 3" should never be executed from the
repository, but from your own working directory that you have checked out:

c:\> mkdir YourWorkingDirectory
c:\> cd YourWorkingDirectory
c:\> cvs checkout RecipeCenter
[modify, add, remove to your heart's content]
c:\YourWorkingDirectory\RecipeCenter> cvs commit
