It's a permissions error.  You should change the CVSTEMP directory 
(through the control panel) to something other than winnt\temp and 
assign all CVS users full rights to that directory (or in your case, the 
'run as' user for CVSNT since you're using the passwd file).

Another note -- generally it is advisable to just use the simplest setup 
of SSPI protocol and Win users to control access to your repository. 
Unless there's a reason you diverged from that setup you should consider 
using it.
