Using a network file system like SAMBA to access your repository is not
recommended -- you'll likely encounter any number of strange permission
problems and may end up with a corrupted repository.  Use client/server
CVS instead.  If you insist on using SAMBA, there used to be some
instructions on the SAMBA web site for configuring it to work with CVS
-- I suggest you look for them.
