Exactly what CVS server version are you running?  This command will show

   cvs -z3 -d:ext:address@hidden:/cvs ver

A :local: user is considered to be admin for some purposes - I suspect
you are using CVSNT server and you do not have an ACL to allow you to
write to that directory, or you are using some other ACL package for CVS
that does something similar.

I think if Denis was right and the file permissions were wrong then you
wouldn't be able to commit using :local: either....

If you are using CVSNT (yes it runs on linux too) then you should
contact the CVSNT newsgroup or read the cvsnt manual on how to set
access control using "cvs chacl".
