OK, I took your suggestion and changed the repository.
When I run cvs admin I get a CVSROOT not defined.
As I said, I am really new to this and pretty much lost at this point.

>/ I am trying to setup the cvsnt server on a Linux box running RedHat 9.0

/var/lib/cvsnt would be a more logical place to put your repository.

Path to repository should be /cvs since this is what you've specified in

Does cvs work from the command line?
