I am trying to use the CVS functionality in emacs on Linux (RedHat 9).
I can connect to my repository over SSH and perform all tasks from the
shell, but when I try to do the same tasks from the emacs menu, I get

Error number one:
Message: ssh_askpass: exec(/usr/lib/ssh/ssh-askpass): No such file or directory
Message: Write failed: Broken pipe

ssh version is
OpenSSH_3.6.1p2, SSH protocols 1.5/2.0, OpenSSL 0x0090701f

emacs version is

I have searched the web quite extensively, and have found many
pointers that suggest that cvs over ssh is possible in emacs, however
there is no concrete documentation in the pertinent places (emacs FAQ,
pcl_cvs faq,, and the snippets that I have gained from
browsing google are promising but incomplete.
