If the ISP doesn't already offer CVS access, they probably won't consider
running it without significant customer demand. Try making a repository on the
ISP machine locally first. If you get that to work, try using rsh/ssh to access
it. If you're trying to set up a repository for public use, try a public hosting
service, like See the manual for details.

Does that mean the permissions don't include the execute bit, or that you can't
run 'executables' in the directory? If the execute bit is missing on the
directory, you can't write files or cd to it (assuming this is a UNIX-type
system), which renders it quite useless.
