I am trying to download the latest version of the code, using the  
commands listed on the MITgcm website, but it won't let me in. A  
problem with the password? Please advise. Details are below.

Thanks, Galen

Following these directions

   tcsh or csh shell:
     $ setenv CVSROOT ':pserver:cvsanon at mitgcm.org:/u/gcmpack'
     $ cvs login
       ( enter the CVS password: "cvsanon" )
     $ cvs co -P MITgcm

I get

cvs login: warning: failed to open /Users/galen/.cvspass for reading:  
Permission denied
cvs [login aborted]: could not open /Users/galen/.cvspass for  
writing: Permission denied

following the 2nd step
