I have installed cvsnt on my cvs server and its up and running. I have
tortise running on my development computer and I have a project that I want
to "check in" for the first time. What is the appropriate way to do this?
When I do a right click, CVS >> Make New Module, I get:
In C:\DOCUME~1\jblock\LOCALS~1\Temp\TortoiseCVS make new module temp\:
cvs -q -x import -m "" bs tcvs-vendor tcvs-release

No conflicts created by this import

Success, CVS operation completed

In C:: cvs -q -x checkout bs

cvs checkout: in directory .:
cvs [checkout aborted]: *PANIC* administration files missing

Error, CVS operation failed


What should I be doing differently? I can tell I've almost got it working.
