 we keep our sources in a repository on a different machine(Red Hat
Linux release 7.0 (Guinness), Kernel 2.2.16-22 on an i686). method of access is pserver and in CVSROOT/config it is mentioned to us System authentication.
 everything was working fine. i was able to import new module, add
files, commit files, checkout modules, etc. for lase 15 - 20 days i am working with fellow programmer on his module and was interacting with repository using his user account. now i forgot my user account's password and so changed my old password(using root login). now i m able to telnet to the repository machine with new password but i m not able to commit changes to repository using my user account and the new password. the cvs server says authentication failed.
what is the problem? how can it be solved?

Backup your changes made on files on local machine. Set the CVSROOT with your new username. Then do a "cvs login". It will ask for password. Give your *new* password. Then check out whole module again to local machine. Incorporate the changes your backed up earlier. Then "commit". This should work.
