When you use -d, CVS will only create the bottom-most directory; any
parent directories must already exist.  So, all you have to do is to
create the www directory by hand; then your checkout will work fine.

  I tried that as well, thinking maybe there was a permissions problem
somehow, I get the same error if the www directory is created or not.  If I
check the project out of the repository as it is, all the directories get
created, including the parent.  It's only if I try to use -d with anything
that has subdirectories, if I check out a project that only has one level
and redirect it to a new directory name using -d it works fine.

  I am going to try to start the pserver again using the -f option, I hope
it works otherwise I am not sure what I can try next.
