Thanks.   Since we only have one repository currently, I will set CVSROOT.

"Logging in" just associates a password with a CVSROOT specification, it
doesn't set your "current" CVSROOT; you can be logged in to many
different CVSROOTs at the same time (I'm currently logged in to 5 or 6).
 If you've set your $CVSROOT environment variable, you don't need to use
-d on the command line (unless you want to override $CVSROOT).
