If you're going to use add, you want to do "cvs add povtext" here.  That
will make povtext a subdirectory of test in the repository, which I
presume is what you want.  Directories are added immediately rather than
waiting for a commit.

At this point, you should do "cvs add *" followed by "cvs commit".

Alternatively, you can add the files with import.  In that case, you
*don't* want to be in your working directory, you want to do it from
where the files already exist:

        cd /cpsmig/povmar01/povtext
        cvs import -m "add new dir" test/povtext stacy start

Note that I specified the repository directory as test/povtext to make a
subdirectory under the existing directory.  If you wanted povtext to be
a new top-level directory, you would just say "povtext" instead.

After updating, you can go back to your working directory and do:

        cvs update -d

to get the new directory and files.
