An error on 'cvs add' implies that 'cvs co' worked. The user probably doesn't
have write permission in the directory they are trying to add the file to.

It sounds like the $CVSROOT environment variable uses the :ext: method on the
local machine, when it usually only contains the repository path. If local
access doesn't work, it's almost certainly a permissions problem.

Upgrading the server won't solve your problem, but it will give you better leads
to help you (and everyone else) figure it out.
