That implies that someone or something has removed some of the
administrative files from your working directory. In your working
directory, there should be a CVS subdirectory that contains at least the
files Entries, Repository, and Root.

Those files should never go away. Perhaps you have some kind of a local
script that's going awry.
I just can't identify with that kind of work ethic. -- Calvin
