  I have a system account on machine-A with the Username "michael" and
Password "password", using "michael/password", I can log into CVS using the
client and can access the repository.  If I create the passwd file within
CVS having a Username "michael" and Password "testing", and uncomment the
SystemAuth line in the config file, I cannot login with "michael/testing"
but michael/password still works.

  My passwd file has an entry like  -   testuser:gu76sdg67f:michael 
so that testuser can access the repository as michael...but it will not
allow testuser access to the repository.  Error message on this follows.

  As I mentioned in my previous posts, I get two different errors, depending
on how I am accessing the CVS repository.

  Using michael/testing as in my previous example I get - incorrect password
as an error on the Unix client and cannot access the repository.  Within
WinCVS I see a little bit more of an error - cvs login: authorization
failed: server machine-A rejected access to /home/michael/CVS/webSystems for
user michael

  Using the testuser Username as an example, all I see on the Unix client is
cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from machine-A: E Fatal
error, aborting.  Within WinCVS I see a little bit more - Fatal error,
testuser: no such user
cvs login: authorization failed: server machine-A rejected access to
/home/michael/CVS/webSystems for user testuser

  CVSROOT is set correctly, and the test repository lives in my area, so I
have permissions to do everything within the repository.  CVS sits on a
Solaris box, and accepts the telnets into port 2401 correctly, I am having
the same access problems when accessing from a client on Windows or another
Solaris box so I am suspecting there is a setting off somewhere in the
repository but I can't figure out where.
