That's what happens if you're running an old version of CVS (you might
want to update to the current release -- 1.11.1p1 -- which you can find
at and do an import inside the repository.  Your
repository should be a brand new directory that you create and initially
set up using "cvs init" -- not an existing directory with files that you
want to put into CVS.  When you do an import, you specify the *relative*
path inside the repository where the files are to be stored, not an
absolute path like in your above command.
