ambiguous file name, due to case insensitivity

I am using cvs from the command line, with cvs client version 1.11, on Windows NT.
Unfortunately, it seem that I have two files with similar names:
The names only differ in the capitalization of the letter "I".
On unix, I don't have any problem using cvs.
However, on my PC Windows client, I cannot do a checkout or update, since I get this message
when I attempt to update the track:

cvs update
cvs server: Updating .
cvs [server aborted]: contactInfo.gif,v is ambiguous; could mean contactinfo.gif,v or contactInfo.gif,v
In an attempt to "fix" this, I have removed the file contactinfo.gif, by doing the following
on a unix machine where the same branch is checked out:
rm contactinfo.gif
cvs remove contactinfo.gif
cvs commit -m "removing file" contactinfo.gif
However, this has not corrected the problem. I still cannot checkout the track or do an update on
my Windows PC.
Any help would be appreciated.
