generating patches

Hi.  I am trying to generate a set of patches for a set of files.  

I retrieved the set of files from the sourceforge project and made 
some modifications, which included adding completely new files.  
When I tried to generate a patch listing with 

cvs diff -RN 

I got everything except the new files.  These were listed at the 
top of the diff/patch list with '?' marks.  I then found out that 
I have to cvs add these files.  My problem is that when I try to 
add I get an error that says I need write access to the 
repository.  I don't want to write to the "real" repository, just 
my local copy so that I can generate a patch file.  How do I get 
cvs to add only to my local copy?

Any help would be appreciated.
