problem logging into cvs server

I have installed cvs on my redhat machine.

When I try to login to the cvs server using the following command

cvs -d :pserver:joe:address@hidden:/home/cvs login

I get the following error message
cvs login: authorization failed: server csiredhat rejected access to /home/cvs for user joe.

Why does this happen?

Please note that my login has "csi" as its inital group and "cvs" as the next group.

I desparately need some help. Please advise.
