Hi all.

I  am getting an error 'permission denied' (details are given below)
when I try to checkout a module to which I HAVE READ ONLY PERMISSIONs.
I am using ntserver cvsnt and winCVS 1.2. I am using 'ntserver'
protocol. I have been given READ only permissions by setting NTFS
permissions (by administrator) for me. I am able to drill down the tree
through windows explorer.

The detailed message is given below:

cvs checkout -d comProj vss2cvs\comProj (in directory C:\)
cvs server: Updating comProj
cvs server: failed to create lock directory for `d:/cvs/vss2cvs/mbcc'
(d:/cvs/vss2cvs/comproj/#cvs.lock): Permission denied
cvs server: failed to obtain dir lock in repository
cvs checkout: warning: unrecognized response `5' from cvs server
cvs checkout: warning: unrecognized response `/cvs/vss2cvs/comproj''
from cvs server
cvs [server aborted]: read lock failed - giving up
cvs [checkout aborted]: reading from server: Invalid argument

*****CVS exited normally with code 1*****

Any advice?
