adding user with passwd file

Sorry if this isn't directed towards the correct mailing list. I'm having a 
problem setting up a new user, using the file 'passwd'. If anyone can offer 
any suggestions/help it would be greatly appreciated.

I have created the file 'passwd' and added the line :


to it (no blank lines in the file). When I try to logon the server, I get the 
error :

Fatal error, aborting.
cvs_user: no such user

I get this even though the user geo is added to the file 'passwd'. I am using 
my username for the cvs server and I have no problem accessing it with this 

I have been through many books/manuals and have followed the settings but 
haven't been able to get it to work.

Thanks for any help,
