pserver login error on checkout (.cvsignore)

Hi all.
    I'm new to cvs, and I'm sure this is a mundane question, but I would be very grateful if someone would help me solve the following:
cvs server: MacOsX
cvs client: winCVS on win2k pro
I currently have three users: Matt, Les, and dummy1
Matt and Les are Administrators.  Dummy1 is a normal user.
Matt and Les can login to the pserver and issue any commands thay'd like with no problems.
Dummy, however, keeps getting the following error message:
          cvs server: cannot open /var/root/.cvsignore: Permission denied
On one level, this makes perfect sense, as dummy1 does not have access to /var/root.  On the other hand, I'm not exactly sure why cvs is looking there given its setup.  Below are exerpts from the relevant configuration files:
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /bin/sh sh /untitled/cvsroot/CVSROOT/StartPserver.script
# This script initializes the pserver and sets $Home appropriately
env HOME=/Network/Users/Matt/PserverHome > /Network/Users/Matt/PserverHome/envlog.txt
cvs -f --allow-root=/untitled/cvsroot pserver
Am I missing something here?  As far as I know, I'm following the pserver setup instructions in the CVS manual, but perhaps I've overlooked something?
I'd appreciate and advice that anyone has to offer.
