Many thanks.  That gets me logged in as root.  When I try to login via 
winCVS from my main pc, I get

/usr/local/cvsroot login: no such repository
cvs login: authorization failed: server rejected access to 
/usr/local/cvsroot login for user cvs -d :pserver:cditty

I was going to say that this might be because the CVSROOT is owned by root, 
but when I try to login via winCVS with root user, I get the same error 
message.  Any other ideas?
