I have reread info cvs and the docs.  I still cannot see how I
am getting this

cvs checkout takeme
cd takeme
touch a
cvs add a
cvs commit a
cvs commit: failed to create lock directory for
`/repository/takeme/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs commit: lock failed - giving up

I am the user cvs, who is in the group cvs, who owns the CVSROOT which is
/repository.  The permissions of the CVSROOT is

drwxrwxr-x      4 cvs   cvs             4096 Aug 15 13:51 repository

I have also tried using other members of the cvs group and get the same
errors.  If the group permission is rwx, how come they cannot write to it?
I did cvs init after I rebooted the machine using the user cvs.  Does root
have to do this or something?  I am confused, the documentation on info
cvs seems to say you have to create the locks yourself.... am I wrong?
Looks to me like its trying but can't, Im no sys adm so I am not sure what
is going on.

Thanks for the help
