Cannot add a file to module.

Hello, I've been using CVS for a while, but done little
administration.  The problem I'm having is that I cannot seem to add a
file.  Let's pretend I'm adding fubar.cpp in the src directory of a

I go to module/src
Create/Copy the fubar.cpp file
type in "cvs add fubar.cpp"
  cvs replies:
cvs add: scheduling file `fubar.cpp' for addition
cvs add: use 'cvs commit' to add this file permanently

Then I type in "cvs commit fubar.cpp"
Enter in the comment for this commit
  cvs replies:

RCS file: /Test/Linklyzer/src/fubar.cpp,v
cvs commit: Couldn't open rcs file `/Test/Linklyzer/src/fubar.cpp,v':
Permission denied
Terminated with fatal signal 11

(sorry for the line wrap)
Then I have to go in and delete the lock file to even update and
commit things.

  I've looked at the file in the cvs repository, it's ~80 char in
length and just has the basic description at the beginning of every ,v
file.  Also, the file has no permissions set (or rather chmod 0000),
which would explain not being able to open it.
  I've tried going in and changin the permissions afterwards, but I
just get "assert failed, keynode == " or something like that.
  Once I delete the lock file, I can commit and update all the other
files normally, I just cannot add a new file.

  Any help you can offer would be most appreciated.
