I am having a problem getting CVSNT to work on my Windows 2000 Server. I
have the repository set to 

Name	Root
/dev	E:/CVSRepositories/dev

My temp path is set to: E:\CVSTemp\tmp

The permissions I have on  E:\CVSTemp (children inherit so tmp is the same)

Admin - Full Control
System - Full Control
Everyone - Full Control
Service - Full Control

The CVS services are running as localSystem. The "Run as user" is set to the

When a user is set to be an administrator, all is well and they can
update/checkin/checkout. If I remove the user from the Administrators group.
I get the following error when trying to update or commit:

cvs [server aborted]: cannot change permissions on temporary directory
E:\CVSTemp\tmp/cvs-serv3568: Permission denied 
 Error, CVS operation failed 

Does anyone have any ideas? This is driving me nuts.
