CVS problem

I have just set up a repository on a machine and I intend for all users 
to connect through the pserver.
I have followed all of the instructions, and I can verify that all users 
can log in and log out of CVS. However, I get problems when I try to 
import code (although it does seem to work). The main problem is I cannot 
check out code.
The error I get is

cvs server: cannot open /root/.cvsignore: Permission denied
cvs [server aborted]: can't chdir(/root): Permission denied

after I try to do a checkout.
It looks like an obvious permissions problem, but I can't see where.

Does anybody know where I an going wrong?

Thanks very much,

David Churches.
