CVS/root error (or warning) message

I have set up CVS to run locally, all involving windows
machines.  The repository is called 'cvsroot' and
is being accessed as \\ServerName\cvsroot
Import works fine.  Then..
When (on the client) I set an environment variable like so:
set CVSROOT=\\ServerName\cvsroot
and then do:
cvs co projectname
It seems to work but I get the message:
   cvs checkout: in directory \\ServerName\cvsroot:
   cvs checkout: ignoring CVS/Root because it specifies a non-existent repository \\ServerName\cvsroot
(Then I also get the message when I do cvs commit without the -d parameter)
BUT, if I do:
cvs -d $CVSROOT$ co projectname
I get no error message (I also get no error if I use \\ServerName\cvsroot instead of the variable).
Basically I would like to be able to run the client commands without
getting this message and without having to use the -d parameter. 
Any suggestions?
