Maybe it's just never going to work on a netware server without some
code changes to CVS. At least from OS/2 and Windows, a file on
netware server needs to be closed before changing permission or
renaming and so on. I don't know if that's a feature of netware or
or the other operating systems.

Maybe you can use local filesystem on the linux cvs server to hold 
the repository.
