Permission denied when checking out from kerberos client

I'm most of the way to setting up a kerberos authenticated cvs implementation. Following online guides I have set
and created an empty passwd file in the CVSROOT folder.

Kerberos authentication works, both onto the box, and when requesting a ticket on the box.

I can checkout a project locally using
cvs -d <username>@<host>:/var/cvs checkout <modulename>

I'm stuck now with checking out a project using the gserver option:

cvs -d :gserver:<valid_kerberos_username>@<hostname>:/var/cvs checkout test

this is the response I get:
cvs [checkout aborted]: recv() from server cvs: Connection reset by peer

and in the /var/log/messages log I get the following:

May 14 13:22:16 cvs xinetd[4287]: START: cvspserver pid=4695 from=
May 14 13:22:16 cvs xinetd[4695]: execv( /var/cvs ) failed: Permission denied (errno = 13)
May 14 13:22:16 cvs xinetd[4287]: EXIT: cvspserver status=0 pid=4695 duration=0(sec)

I have temporarily set permissions on the CVSROOT and in the projects to allow anyone access to the files, but I still get this error... can anyone shed any light on my issue.

Many thanks
