Problem setting up CVS on linux

I have set up a CVS repository and created a repository.  I used a remote
machine to import files into the repository (successfully).

At this point I wanted to verify that things were working so I backed up the
directory that I imported from and tried to do a "checkout" hoping to get
the original files back.  Instead, I got:

cvs server: cannot open /root/.cvsignore: Permission denied
cvs [server aborted]: can't chdir(/root): Permission denied

When I started the repository (with cvs init) I wasn't root.

Could somebody suggest what the source of my problem might be?

Thanks in advance,

Jeff T.
