"cvs commit: nothing known about"

i am just starting with cvs and was trying to commit a file to its repository project using the following command:

cvs commit -m "added javadoc-style comments for constructor"

however, cvs replied with:

cvs commit: nothing known about `'
cvs [commit aborted]: correct above errors first!

however, when i did the commit without specifying the file name, it worked ok.

the file is a sub-sub-subdirectory from where i ran the cvs commit command.

should i have changed to the sub-sub-subdirectory first and then ran the commit? in this case, will cvs automatically know which directory should be placed in?

or should i have specified:

cvs commit -m "added javadoc-style comments for constructor" subDir\subDir\subDir\


thanks very much.
