I'm tested and the file is in correct place and is the last version of
After I type 'cvs' this message appeared:

    |Concurrent Versions System (CVSNT) (Build 64) (client/server)

When I commit or edit the files, the attribute read-only works fine, but on
checkout the -r option as no efect.

The contents of my '.cvsrc' is this:
    |cvs -r
    |qedit -c
    |qcommit -c

The command line used to checkout is this:
    cvs -d :pserver:everaldo at saturno:/nscvs checkout TESTE
I type this to test:
    cvs -r -d :pserver:everaldo at saturno:/nscvs checkout TESTE

Another problem is on 'update' command, this command do not make files as
read-only attribute.
