Sorry about this newby question

I apologize in advance for what is no doubt a foolish question, but I'd
greatly appreciate it if a kind soul could set me straight.

I've just checked out a CVS archive (I have Fedora Core 1 running on a
laptop, if that matters).
  export CVSROOT=/usr/local/cvs
  mkdir $CVSROOT
  cvs init
  cvs -d:pserver:address@hidden login
  cvs -z3 -d:pserver:address@hidden co modulename
(I pasted in the instructions that were on the site, so I'm pretty sure
I did it right.)

Now I want to add a file to the local repository (by that I mean the
sandbox).  But I am on a laptop, not connected to the Internet.
  cd modulename
  cp /home/jim/newfilename .
  cvs add newfilename
and the system objects "unknown host ..."  (it names the host from
which I checked out the material).

Of course, I can see why it would give me such an objection on a commit
or an update, but should I be getting it on an add or a status?  It
isn't the case that I have to be connected, is it?

Sorry; I'm just not seeing something.  Thanks,
Jim Hefferon
