RE: Pserver Login problem

  The passwd file I am modifying locally using Peter Ajamian's cvspwd
utility, which is really great, a shameless plug for him.

  Config I am modifying locally, I am not bothering with modifying anything
remotely until I can get the CVS only accounts working.

This sounds suspiciously like you are not modifying the correct files. 
Are you actually modifying /home/michael/CVS/webSystems/CVSROOT/passwd
and /home/michael/CVS/webSystems/CVSROOT/config on the server machine,
or are you modifying them remotely using CVS?  If the latter, please
check the actual files on the server and make sure they contain what you
expect them to -- I strongly suspect that they will not.
