RE: adding two files of same name to repository

This is what you did:
$ mkdir Factory
$ cvs add Factory
$ mv Util Factory

This does not put Util into the Factory directory in the repository. It is
only in Factory in your workspace.

This is a file you checked out from Class/Util, and you are trying to add it
in Class/Util.

If, in Class/Factory, you do this:

$ mv Util ..
$ mkdir Util
$ cvs add Util
$ cp ../Util/ Util

then you will be able to add in Class/Factory/Util, if
that's really what you want to do. You need to get a better understanding of
how your workspace is related to your repository. Every working directory
points back to the directory in the repository which it came from.
