CVS local repository - permission denied

I've created a local repository thusly:

[root@tek9]#: cvs -d /usr/local/cvsroot init
[root@tek9]#: chown -R cvs.cvs /usr/local/cvsroot
Note: Permissions on /usr/local/cvsroot are 775 and I set the export variable CVSROOT=/usr/local/cvsroot

[luser@tek9]$: mkdir ~/CVS/config_files; cd ~/CVS/config_files
[luser@tek9]$: cvs import -m "Important Config File Changes"  config_files kru start
However, I am getting the following error:

"cvs import: cannot make path into /usr/local/cvsroot /config_changes: Permission denied

No conflicts created by this import"

I'm very new to CVS. I want to use it to track changes to my config files. Does anyone know what's up with the permissions?

Any help would be greatly appreciated.


P.S. I'm running RH9 with cvs version 1.11.2

-BTW Does anyone know of a good GUI for CVS on Linux? I'm using Cervisia now but I'd like to know what the favorite is.
