I have been trying to set up a CVS server on my machine using CVSD (a
chrooted environment for the CVS server to run in).  I have been able
to start the server and the CVSROOT is located in '/cvs/root/'.  when I
use the command 'cvs -d :pserver:address@hidden:/cvs/root' it will
always prompt me for the password for 'username' and then say:

Fatal error, aborting.
username: no such user

I have ensured that the user that I am using is in the
/cvs/root/CVSROOT/passwd file using the cvsd-passwd command.  I have
also made sure that the CVSD has a user on my machine that owns all of
the files in /cvs.  I am sure that the CVS and CVSD are configured
correctly but for some reason it does not want to check the
/cvs/root/CVSROOT/passwd file.  Can anyone help me out?  I'm stumped
