Checkout error

We are setting up a new repository on a Unix machine and have set up a user
list that gives the appropriate developers read/write access to the CVSROOT
directory.  Logins for the users occur without a problem, but when any of
the users try to check out a module the following error is returned:

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

MIS doesn't want to give everyone write access to the root directory.  Is
there an Environment variable that will place the .cvsignore file in the
CVSROOT directory?
