cannot run cvs task to checkout a module using ant

Please reply to:
I am a new participant.  I wrote the following ant script:

<project name = "cvsco" default = "fetchlatest">
  <target name = "fetchlatest">
      cvsRoot = ":sspi:renzi@"
      package = "jic"
      dest = "."
      command = "checkout"


I get the following error when I run it.

c:\cvstest\build.xml:9: element type "cvs" must be followed by attribute specifications, ">" or "/>"

When I ran
ant -diagnostics
under the tasks section it said
cvs version not available

I am using ant version 1.6.2
I am using
cvs version 2.0.4

cvs is on my path
It is
wincvs 1.3
What am I doing wrong.
