You are trying to add files into CVS out of nowhere. That's just not
how it works; the cvs add operation can only be executed in a working
copy of an existing module.

You must create a module first, and then add files to it.

Or if you have some existing files, you can use cvs import to create
a CVS module out of them. Then check out that module to create a working
copy somewhere.

It sounds like you haven't read the manual. CVS isn't something you can
easily figure out from scratch by exploring blindly; you really have
to read.
