i'm using windows 200 profesional and the next message appears to me when i try to check out the scracth directroy:

"Empty password used - try 'cvs login' with a real password
Fatal error, aborting.
cvs [checkout aborted]: mablazquez: no such user"

Do you know what could the problem be? I'm just trying 4th step.

Thanks for the tutorial.

Thanks for the great manual. I had one little problem left: I did not get access to the repository in step 6. After I did a cvs login, I got access and could create other users. So I guess there should be an additional step before step 6.
