I'm having an issue with pserver logins.

I got cvsnt working on a windows 2000 server.
My %CVSROOT% is c:\cvs
I imported a module ( locally on the machine ): c:\cvs\module
I then set up an NT account to handle pserver logins ( we'll call this acout
Somebody ).
I set up NT file permissions on c:\cvs\module to full control for account

I've added appropriate aliases:

c:\>cvs passwd -r Somebody -a user1
Enter password: *******
Confirm password: *******
c:\>cvs passwd -r Somebody -a user2

Now, on the remote machine running WinCVS, I can login using any of these
aliases fine.
However, when I try to checkout a module, I get this error:

cvs checkout -P module (in directory E:\sandbox)
cvs server: cannot find module `module' - ignored

cvs [checkout aborted]: cannot expand modules

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

Yet, I can check the module out fine if I first login as an administrator.

What am I doing wrong?
