Directories are added to the repository immediately, there's no need to

You should never run CVS as root.  By default, CVS will not allow root
to commit any changes.  When you add a new file, you need to do ``cvs
add'' to tell CVS that you want it to control it.  After you do that,
you'll be able to commit it (as some user other than root).
