I had this same problem. If I remember correctly you have to create the
directory you want the client to go into on each machine (which you can
do locally) As soon as I did that the error messages went away. I don't
know why Remote Cows won't create the directories itself, but it's not
too hard of a workaround (although a little annoying if you're trying to
install to a large number of machines)

(By the way, since when has this list been using ORBS? I've never had a
problem sending a message to the list before.)
