Hmm. Tried that;
bartender  cat passwd
bartender  cat readers
bartender  echo $CVSROOT
:pserver:anonymous at cvs:/var/cvs
bartender  cvs login
Logging in to :pserver:anonymous at cvs:2401/var/cvs
Fatal error, aborting.
anonymous: no such user
That's what happens when I hit enter...does CVS have to be configured to
look at /etc/passwd as well as CVSROOT/passwd ?
