could someone tell me what the permission for all

create new module under CVS and think that's a
CVS is like any other system. You need to have
write access to a file to be able to write it.
CVS however writes to directories, so as long as
you (the user) has write permission to the directory
(CVSROOT) then you can mess with any file in it.
If you don't have write permission to the directory
then you're hosed.
You can use this to restrict access to CVS by
chgrp'ing the repository, then doing something
like chmod o-rwx; chmod -R g+w
Also check that you have write permission to
where in the repository you're trying to put
the new module -- it might be a write permission
problem there rather than in the CVSROOT dir.
