You installed WinCVS on Linux?!?

It would appear that you are running WinCVS in a directory that already
contains (invalid) CVS metadata.  Never try to share a working directory
between two different types of systems.  You need to do a fresh checkout
and go from there.  If you have uncommitted changes in your existing
working directory, you need to commit them on the same type of system
you did the initial checkout on.
