Problem using remote-cvs

I tried to checkout an actual version of drops from the remote-cvs using the commands given on the website.

cvs -d :pserver:guest at login
cvs -z3 -d :pserver:guest at checkout l4 dde hello l4env

It fails with the following error:

cvs checkout: Updating l4/tool/dice/src/parser/inc
cvs checkout: failed to create lock directory for `/home/remote-cvs/CVSROOT' (/home/remote-cvs/CVSROOT/#cvs.history.lock): The file access permissions do not allow the specified action.
cvs checkout: failed to obtain history lock in repository `/home/remote-cvs'

What am I doing wrong?
