What was the pwd when you made that attempt?

You said you've been using Tortoise for over a year, so I'm presuming
you are adding a new file to an existing project.

The process of adding a file to a project is the same, no matter where
the repository is. On your Windows client using Tortoise CVS, you would
check out the repository, add the file to your local working copy, then
commit it.

On the Linux box, the process is exactly the same: check out the
repository into a work area, add the file, then commit it. The work area
*must not* be the same directory as the repository itself, unless you
like playing Russian Roulette with your source code.
