Failed to create Lock Directory

When I run cvs commit I get the following message:

cvs server: failed to create lock directory in repository `/cvsroot/terraex/terraex': Permission denied
cvs server: lock failed - giving up
cvs [server aborted]: lock failed - giving up

The cvs repository is on and I can run update and add fine. I'm not the developer who started the cvs repository, I have been added to the project lately and despite trying several times, I constantly get this message. It does get to the stage of examining directories, asking for my password, asking for a log entry and then printing ?'s for a few files.

Is this a CVS, Sourceforge, or "Me" issue?

Running cvs 1.10.7 on Linux 2.2.14

Any help would be much appreciated.
