Hello CVSNT users,
I found the problem by inspecting root.cpp and server.cpp from the CVSNT
For all of you with the same problem,
just check if the /etc/cvsnt/PServer file is readable by the CVS users.
If not, then the errors like I described will occur.
NOTE: I think it would be a _very good idea_ to put this information to
the CVSNT/Linux Install documentation, as most of people would like to
protect CVSNT server configuration from being readable by anyone!!!...
