That could be a bad --allow-root= option, a bad password, or a non-existant
user id.  If you are running a current of CVS (1.11.1p1) and you sent all
the error strings from your run, then it was a bad password.  If it is an
earlier server or you didn't send the complete output of your failed run,
then it could be any of the three.

If that's not enough information, try reading through the "Trouble
Connecting to a CVS Server" section of the CVS manual on
