yep,  I've compiled with SETXID_SUPPORT, I've modified main.c running it
setuid, I just added line to main.c near the beginning:


like FAQ file it recommends.

here is my cvs binary permissions:
-rwxr-sr-x    1 root     p3cvsg    1557704 May  6 15:49 /usr/bin/cvs

Regarding the questions of Aaron:
Did you login with your password? Yes I did.
I'm guessing your repository top is /src? Yes, it is.
have you checked your rights to CVSROOT? (ls -l?)
drwxrws---    4 root     p3cvsg       4096 May  7 16:53 CVSROOT

it's almost as if you have a CVS database that someone's been moving stuff
around in it . . 
well we are trying to move my current cvs repository to another more

here you are an example:
$export CVSROOT=myserver:/myrepository/src
$export CVS_SERVER=/usr/bin/cvs
$ cvs version 
Client: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.2 (client/server)
Server: Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.2 (client/server)

cvs server: Updating CVSROOT
U CVSROOT/checkoutlist
U CVSROOT/commitinfo
U CVSROOT/config
U CVSROOT/cvsignore
U CVSROOT/cvswrappers
U CVSROOT/editinfo

if I do a:
$export CVSROOT=:pserver:address@hidden:/myrepository/src

$cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:address@hidden:2401/myrepository/src
CVS password: my_password
$cvs co CVSROOT
Cannot access /local/p4cvs/src/CVSROOT
File exists

Thanks for the help.

That implies that either access(2) returned with errno set to EEXIST
(which seems highly unlikely) or you've compiled with SETXID_SUPPORT
defined and you don't have read and execute permission on that
