[rancid] rancid failing login to cisco switches

I had found that in the info, but had created the directories first and then tried to run it.

I destroyed the directory for the new group, ran $ rancid-cvs and all is fine now.

Thank you again!

the match is case-insensitive in v 3.2.

you must use rancid-cvs to create the dir.
