The message you get indicates (probably) that cvs gets an error from the
operating system. Cvs tries to pass this kind of errors on to you but it
doesn't always work in my experience.

I'm getting the above message using CVSNT (Build 57c) when I try
import a module.  I get the same problem using Linux and Windows clients.
Searching the mailing list archives didn't turn up a similar problem, and
unfortunately there were no other messages.

I can do normal cvs operations on _existing_ modules without any trouble,
so I
don't think there is a CVSROOT or a pserver authentication problem.  I made
all of the permissions [repository, TEMP and TMP] work for the user running
cvs server (which is SYSTEM on an NT 4 SP6 box).  The existing modules in
repository were created using a prior version of CVSNT.  I needed to
upgrade the
cvs server because the repository prefix feature in the newer servers

Any help in diagnosing this would be very much appreciated.
