Thanks.  With this, "cvs login" worked, but "cvs co" did not; here's
the trace:

    $ cvsroot -t co CVSROOT
    S-> do_module (CVSROOT, Updating, , )
    S-> do_module (CVSROOT, Updating, , )
    S-> fopen(/home/cvs/CVSROOT/history,a)
    S-> unlink(./CVS/Entries.Static)
    cvs server: Updating CVSROOT
    cvs server: failed to create lock directory in repository 
`/home/cvs/CVSROOT': Permission denied
    cvs server: failed to obtain dir lock in repository `/home/cvs/CVSROOT'
    cvs [server aborted]: read lock failed - giving up

Will try this as well, thanks.

Btw, where do I find the CVS tree (or instructions about where to find
it) for the files in the directory /home/www/html/manual/emacs/?  I
thought about updating the manuals there with the new ones which will
be shipped with Emacs 21.  (I have an account on gnudist, if that
helps, but /etc/motd there says that all the files should be modified
via CVS.)

Thanks again for your help.
