That's a warning that you aren't able to modify /etc/cvsnt/PServer with 
the registration info for the new repo.  You can run that command as 
root (or someone with appropriate permissions), or you can run "cvs ... 
init -n" to tell init not to try and register it (then register it 
manually later).
