CVS problem

I havent been able to get to the cvs server these past two days. I’m doing exactly what is on the site:

cd /usr/src/
cvs login

but then I get:

cvs login: No CVSROOT specified! Please use the `-d’ option
cvs [login aborted]: or set the CVSROOT environment variable.

Does anyone know what my problem is or is there a problem with the CVS server? Thanks

Sounds like your shell isn’t bash.
