How does cvs work?

Hello all

I have used cvs at work many years ago.  I have set up cvs and RCS and have 
a CVSROOT /cvsroot, and a link from /home to /cvsroot;  it is writeable and 
I can check in local source trees.

Following the instructions on the web I have tried:

bash-2.05$ cvs -d :pserver:anonymous at  
cvs login: Sorry, you don't have sufficient access to 
:pserver:anonymous at
cvs [login aborted]: 
:pserver:anonymous at No such file 
or directory
bash-2.05$ ls /cvsroot/

What have I missed doing?
