#1 Can't access CVS via Developer password


I can't seem to access CVS this way. I believe it has to do
with the fact that I'm not really sure what is meant by
"MODULENAME" in the cvs command line. Below is the script I am
using and the message I get:

export CVS_RSH=ssh

cvs -z3 -d:ext:imaginereno@cvs.open-beos.sourceforge.net:/
cvsroot/open-beos co preferences

imaginereno@cvs.open-beos.sourceforge.net's password:
Could not chdir to home directory /home/users/i/im/
imaginereno: No such file or directory
cvs [server aborted]: can't chdir(/home/users/i/im/
imaginereno): No such file or directory

Any help would be appreciated.

    What to do FIRST
    SSH into your user account on the CVS server. This will create your
    home directory so that you can begin to use CVS. CVS access
    will NOT work until you have done this.
    How to import source code into your repository

    On your local machine, change to the directory whose files (and
    subdirectories) you want to import. Everything now in the
    current directory and all subdirectories will be imported into the
    Type the following, where loginname is your SourceForge login name,
    yourproject is the unix group name of your project, and
    directoryname is the name of the new CVS root level directory.
    cvs -d:ext:loginname@cvs.yourproject.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/
    yourproject import directoryname
    vendor start

    I logged on with SSH and at the "shell", did the following:

    imaginereno@usw-pr-shell2:~$ cvs -z3 -d:ext:imaginereno@cvs.open-
    beos.sourceforge.net:/cvsroot/open-beos co preferences
    imaginereno@cvs.open-beos.sourceforge.net's password:
    Permission denied, please try again.
    imaginereno@cvs.open-beos.sourceforge.net's password:
    Could not chdir to home directory /home/users/i/im/imaginereno: No
    such file or directory
    cvs [server aborted]: can't chdir(/home/users/i/im/imaginereno): No
    such file or directory

    CVS is working fine. If additional problems appear, submit
    another support request.
