I have CVSNT setup on my Windows 2000 Advanced Server box.  I can
checkout/checkin just fine from my Windows XP and Windows 2000 machine.

I can also checkout modules just fine using my Unix client.  However,
when I "touch" a file and try to commit it - I get the following error:

cvs server: failed to create lock directory for `d:/cvs/d:/cvs/onpoint'
(d:/cvs/d:/cvs/onpoint/#cvs.lock): Invalid argument
cvs server: failed to remove lock
d:/cvs/d:/cvs/onpoint/#cvs.wfl.merlin(mraible).2000: Invalid argument
cvs server: lock failed - giving up
cvs [server aborted]: lock failed - giving up
cvs [commit aborted]: end of file from server (consult above messages if

My CVSROOT is set as :pserver:mraible at merlin.raibledesigns.com:d:/cvs -
which works great for checking stuff out and updating.

Any ideas?
