Do you need to use pserver?  If you've got a real account on the box
it's much more practical and secure to use 'ssh' instead.

Also make sure that you've got write permission to the /cvsroot
directory tree.  Cvs makes lock files as you check things out and will
complain if it can't create them.

The problem you've got above though appears to be entirely to do with
the pserver configuration.
