There was some problem with CVSROOT, which have corrected. What I did
was simply setup CVSROOT again and that  solved the problem. All the CVS
operations are working as expected now.

Many Thanks , Girish

What CVSROOT have you setup?  What is the actual command being executed
that you can see in the CVS Command window?
