problems with remote checkout

Hello all

I've been using cvs now since some weeks and I already started to like it
very much.  It's great. These days I had to move all repositories to a new
machine and I can't get things back working fully. Locally everything (I
tested so far) is fine. But when I try to checkout something from a
remote machine I get the following error message

cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/home/bernhard/cvs/single-shot \
checkout cvi-adc

cvs server: cannot open /root/.cvsignore: Permission denied
cvs [server aborted]: can't chdir(/root): Permission denied

I think that in inetd.conf, services ... everything is ok. The only
difference that I can see is the old repository machine was an intel pc
the new one is a PPC PowerMac, and, of course that the repository moved to
another site (as a .tgz file). The problem seems to be independent from
the client since I get the same result using WinCVS and cvs command line
on the PPC machine, respectively.

here's the contents of

Can anyone give me a hint what I could have done wrong?

regards and many thanks
