I am currently setting up CVS(CVS NT Service build 57f) on Win2k
Server inside of a domain.  The server that CVS is installed on is not the
domain controller.  I am able to connect to cvs through the command prompt
and I am also able to add users to the passwd file using their domain
passwords.  Now when I actually try to connect to the repository using the
Administrator's account I can access CVS with out any problems.  I run the
CVS ls -l -R command and it lists all the correct information.  When I
attempt to do this with another user that has been added to the passwd file
(i.e. log in and then show the files in the CVSROOT using the ls command) I
get the following error.

can't create temporary directory E:\cvstemp/cvs-serv2428
Permission denied

I assume that I haven't setup security properly on the local file system.
I have tried giving full access with my domain account to the e:\cvstemp
directory but that still doesn't work.  Any suggestions would be greatly
