CVS isn't the best place to store a 158MB (presumably binary) file...

To commit you'll need at least 158MB*2+(size of RCS file) free space.
If this is a binary file & you've committed before the RCS file could
well be huge.  If it's text it has to diff the individual file which
could well at another 100MB or so to the space usage.
