Can't add new modules

Hello all-

We have a CVS server (1.11.17 running on Mandrake Linux 10.1) that was
set up over a year ago by someone who no longer works here. For the past
year we have only used Tortoise CVS from windows as the client and we have
had no problems whatsoever. Today I wanted to add some new modules from
a Linux client. But when I issue the add command it fails:

$ cvs add casper.c
address@hidden's password:
cvs add: cannot open CVS/Entries for reading: No such file or directory
cvs [add aborted]: no repository

My CVSROOT is set as follows:

$ echo $CVSROOT

On the server machine (source), I have the following dir structure:

$ pwd
$ ls
aIRU/  CVS/  CVSROOT/  large_file
$ ls -l CVS
total 8
-rw-r--r--  1 ata cvs 41 Sep 27 14:32 Entries
-rw-rw-r--  1 ata cvs 61 Sep 23 15:31 fileattr

If I copy my code over to the same box as the server and try to
add it, I get this:

$  cvs -d /home/ata/src add casper.c
cvs add: in directory .:
cvs [add aborted]: there is no version here; do 'cvs checkout' first

What do I need to do to be able to use this server with a linux client?
As I said, evertything works fine when using the windows CVS client.
