Setting up CVS

I'm trying to setup CVS on a Linux box. I've created the directory for the
repository, and set CVSROOT. When I try to import a project, I get the

        cvs import: No CVSROOT specified!  Please use the `-d' option
        cvs [import aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

Immediately after that, I display the environment variable and get the

        >echo $CVSROOT

Directory CVS *DOES* exist under / as shown:

        > ls -l /
        total 0
        drwxr-xr-x  2 michael users 48 2004-09-13 08:37 CVSROOT

What am I doing wrong? It appears that CVS is ignoring the CVSROOT
environment variable.
