newbie question CVS on Solaris

  I am in the process of installing CVS on Solaris
5.8. I've followed the instructions and downloaded the
binary version of the CVS from
http://ftp.gnu.org/non-gnu/cvs/. The first surprising
thing I noticed is the file has a .gz extension, but
cannot be gunzipped or unzipped:
$ gunzip cvs-1.11.22-SUN.bin.gz

gunzip: cvs-1.11.22-SUN.bin.gz: not in gzip format
$ unzip cvs-1.11.22-SUN.bin.gz
Archive:  cvs-1.11.22-SUN.bin.gz
  End-of-central-directory signature not found. 
Either this file is not
  a zipfile, or it constitutes one disk of a
multi-part archive.  In the
  latter case the central directory and zipfile
comment will be found on
  the last disk(s) of this archive.
note:  cvs-1.11.22-SUN.bin.gz may be a plain
executable, not an archive
unzip:  cannot find zipfile directory in one of
cvs-1.11.22-SUN.bin.gz or
        cvs-1.11.22-SUN.bin.gz.zip, and cannot find
cvs-1.11.22-SUN.bin.gz.ZIP, period.

My assumption at this point is that CVS is actually
just one executable that you put in the /usr/local/bin
directory, so I installed it that way.

I created a repository on the machine OK.

But now I am tryin gto get remote access to work. I've
made the additions to the inetd.conf and /etc/services
files, but I get a connection refused. Someone made a
suggestion to trouble shoot this by just putting the
echo command in the inetd.conf:
2401 stream tcp nowait root /bin/echo echo hello

Since I could not get cvs to work.

My quesion is that over in the /etc/services file I
have the following lines:
cvspserver      2401/tcp
cvspserver      2401/udp

Doesn;t there need to be an executable named
cvspserver somewhere? All I have is

When I telnet machinename 2401 I get conneciton
refused even if I am on the same machine.

Thanks. - Jesse
