Two things:  First, you should use forward slashes (/) in your ROOT
specification, not backslashes; although backslashes mostly work, there
are still some subtle problems that will eventually cause you much grief
if you use them.  Second, there is some kind of syntax error in your
CVSROOT/config file -- check it carefully for embedded control
characters and make sure it has the correct line endings for the
platform it's on.
