Hmmm, "root" sounds like Unix and "administrateur" sounds like
Windows...  Assuming a Unix-oid box below.

You must have done the init and the import as root.  If you have
only one normal user, just change the ownership of your $CVSROOT
tree to him, recursively.  If you have many users, create a "cvs"
group and put all your users in that group;  for symmetry, create
also a *user* "cvs" and put him in the cvs group;  change the
ownership of all *directories* in the $CVSROOT tree to user cvs,
group cvs, and change the *directory* permissions to 02775 (owner
rwx, group rwx, other r-x and setgid).

The file permissions are probably 0444 and can stay that way.  It's
the directory permissions that matter most.
