Help figuring out RCS(Revision Control System), IE: the command CI

From the man page and a few tuts that I have read it says that when i invoke, 'ci someprogram.c' a RCS folder should be created and the revision deposited into it. But what happens is in my pwd a file 'someprogram.c,v' is created and the original is deleted.

Can anyone help me and explain to me what i'm doing wrong?

Im using slackware 13, 64bit if that has any relevance.
