CVS checkout question

Hi all,

I've got a Windows XP Home computer acting as a CVS server with a 
repository set up, and CVSNT running. I am able to check out modules 
locally. However, when I try to check out from another client, it gives 
me an error:

C:\Documents and Settings\MSarwari>cvs -d :sspi: 
checkout -c

cvs [server aborted]: can't create temporary directory C:\WINDOWS
552: Permission denied

I'm able to login with the following:

C:\Documents and Settings\MSarwari>cvs -z9 -d :sspi:cvsadmin@
repo login
Logging in to :sspi:address@hidden:2401:/cvsrepo
CVS Password:

"cvsadmin" is an administrative account on the server. I've given 
permissions to the \WINDOWS\TEMP folder for the user on the client. 
Also, I tried to set the temp folder under the "server settings" tab in 
the CVSNT control panel to another folder, c:\cvstemp, but it won't 

Any ideas on what could be wrong?

Thanks much for any advice,
