Since CVS is a server thing, I prefer to have the repository installed 
somewhere else than in my home directory.  (Typically I choose 
/local/cvs or something like that.)

Is your home directory shared between your server and the workstation?

The error message seems to indicate to me that you are trying to check 
out a copy of the repository and placing the checked out copy in the 
repository itself.

Try placing the repository somewhere else, away from  your home
