The CVS client on your Fedora Core-2 GNU/Linux box is probably a version which does not support the sspi protocol.

You may need to download a client to your Fedora box
and use that instead of cvs if you wish to use sspi.

Personally, I recomment using :ext: with CVS_RSH=ssh as the most
reasonable client/server protocol. Both CVS and CVSNT support it.
