When you say you "logged in" your CVSROOT/passwd, do you mean you are
using CVS to manage it?  If so, did you add it to the checkout list file
as discussed in <>? 
And did you read where it says that that's not generally done due to
security risks?

Login failures either mean the user isn't known, the password isn't
correct, or the specified repository doesn't exactly match any of the
server's --allow-root options.  Quoting the exact error message rather
than paraphrasing can be very helpful in determining the exact problem.
