Caught exception: java.io.IOException: No such file or directory when running cvs ant task

I am trying to write a script that can download a project from cvs.  It works on windows but if I put it on a fedora 10 machine. I receive this error and I can't seem to figure out what's causing it.
 [cvs] Caught exception: java.io.IOException: No such file or directory

I took a guess that maybe it was the .cvspass file since it comes right after that line and I tried just setting the rights on that file to 777 to make sure it had full access.  It had no effect and I still receive the error.

Below is the verbose log from the ant script

trak-checkout:

Your username is presumably something other than 'user' ..? 'user' looks like a placeholder to me

I changed some of the values I didn't want to post this online

1. user is a place holder for my real username
2. username is also a place holder for my real username
3. project  is really the name of a project

[user@localhost ~]$ ls -l ~/.cvspass
-rwxrwxrwx 1 user user 57 2009-06-30 14:26 /home/user/.cvspass
[user@localhost ~]$


I had previously ran chmod a+rwx on it (only as a temporary solution) so it has all rights

Well maybe that's not the file it's complaining about. What's the current ant command?

below is the target that is being called
  <target name="project-checkout" depends="dir" 
          description="Update or check out required sources
                       from CVS">
 
    <echo message="Checking out the required sources from CVS"/>
	<cvspass cvsroot="${project.cvsroot}"
       password="password"
	   passfile=".cvspass"
	/>
	<input
		message="Please enter the tag name(default is head):"
		addproperty="cvs.tag"
		defaultvalue="HEAD"
	/>
    <cvs cvsroot="${project.cvsroot}" quiet="true"

You could try using the --debug parameter to Ant. Probably a good idea to echo the properties too to make sure they're set

I am only getting the lines below in between CVS_PASSFILE and the ioexception line

This really is one of those times where you just wished they put the file name out to the console/log.  Probably is a ridiculously simple problem, just can't figure out what the problem is!
      [cvs] 	CVS_PASSFILE=/home/alandauser/.cvspass
Execute:Java13CommandLauncher: Executing 'cvs' with arguments:
'-d:pserver:rtg\user:password@10.0.1.26:/comanche'
'-q'
'-z3'
'checkout'
'-rHEAD'
'project_trak/trak'
The ' characters around the executable and arguments are
not part of the command.

I fixed it, ugh I didn't have cvs installed on the linux box.  On fedora i just did

yum install cvs

I got the clue from this site http://www.java-tips.org/other-api-tips/ant/how-to-use-cvs-task-2.html
where it says
     This task needs "cvs" on the path. If it isn't, you will get an error (such as error 2 on windows). If  
     <cvs> doesn't work, try to execute cvs.exe from the command line in the target directory in which
     you are working.
