Hi Daniel!

I think the problem is that the machine you are using does not have a host
name defined for it. also, it might not be visible over the network. There
are two remedies for this problem as far as I can see. Please correct me if
someone thinks I am wrong.

1. You need to define a host name for your CVS server. From what I made out
you are working on a Linux System. This can be done by running the 'neat'
aplication from console or if you do not have graphics then you need to edit
the network settings file. And set the host name for the machine. I think
this file should be someplace where the DNS name or 'bind' files are

2. Configure samba for your machine and set the host name in the samba
configuration file. This is in the /etc/samba directory if red hat
distribution has been installed. It might vary for other distributions.

Any problems, please do get back.
