I'm having trouble with lock files under w2k for some reason.

I want to move my lockfile directory outside of my repository, so I have created a directory: d:\cvs\locks.

I have create my repository in: D:\CVS\Repository\Java.  I have then modified the config file to include the line: LockDir=d:\cvs\locks.

However, when I try to commit changes to the modules file, I get the following error msg:
Checking in modules;
/DameII/CVSROOT/modules,v <-- modules
new revision: 1.2; previous revision: 1.1
cvs [server aborted]: could not open lock file `D:/CVS/Repository/Java/CVSROOT/,modules,': Permission denied

I don't understand.  Why is it trying to create the lock file in D:/CVS/Repository/Java/CVSROOT/ ???  Shouldn't it be creating the lock file in d:\cvs\locks?  I've tried with both forward and backward slashes, but neither work.

Help please?
