Hi All,
I'm a newbie to CVS, but so far from reading the manuals and looking
through forums I've coped, but now seemed to have hit a brick wall.
What I'm trying to do is connect to a server which has a project and
ammend the project on my local machine and then save it. I believe I
have a repository set up.
My local machine OS is Win XP
The server OS is NT
the project is called project.

On my local machine I go into the command prompt and enter:-
C:\>cvs -d :servername: checkout -d /cvsroot/projectcvs project

this gives me the error below:-
cvs checkout: CVSROOT "servername" must be an absolute pathname
cvs [checkout aborted]: Bad CVSROOT.

Can anyone please help.
