one more thing it still seems that when I go into the working copy and try
to execute CVS-commands it again doesn't use CVSROOT envoirment variable but
what is set into ./CVS/Repository..
What I should do remove/modify all Repository files  !!!?
Thanx in advance

PS. Isn't Repository files created every time u check-out ... if I follow my
thought it means that if I create working copy via normal-method but then I
want to use it via say :pserver: method, I'm in big trouble ... i.e.
I can't override repository pointed by ./CVS/Repository file with CVSROOT.
Isn't it closer to the mind to think that CVSROOT has the precedence over
all other methods of specifyng Repository except -d option... or I'm missing

| Yep that was exactly the problem ... Thanx alot ...

| | One possible pitfall, if ./CVS/Repository exists, it takes precendence

| | $CVSROOT.  That is, you either have to use the -d-switch, or be in a
