Oh, you are working in local mode (in contrast with client/server) .
It's kind of odd that it asks you to login then. Are you sure
kp2/CVS/Root also contains a local root (i.e. no

I remember I always had permission problems with local mode and multiple
users. It can be done though: see chapter 2.2.2 of the Cederqvuist.

My preference is client/server, with the whole repository
(maybe apart from CVSROOT) is owned by one unix user.
Then the permission problems are gone as long as everyone
just touches his or her own sandbox.
