        Actually i am working on CVS version 1.10.5 on linux platform (Red Hat 6.1).I extract the cvs.gz file in root directory,after that i set the CVSROOT=/root/cvs-1.10.5 in .bash file & .profile file, as setenv command is not working there.Then when i gave  cvs init  command, one folder gets created in  /root called CVSROOT   and in that CVS  folder gets created.

        After that i tried in /root directory the command cvs checkout test the test is some folder where .c  files are present.The test folder is in /root/cvs-1.10.5 directory.Then it only shows the message updating test like that. But it did not show the listing of those file which are pesent in test folder.Also the checkout command made a directory in root with the same name at /root and it contain also CVS dir. but it did not contain the .c files.So i did not get how the checkout command works.

Can u please send me the related documents like

Also also after checking out how to made the changes in Repository?.

Like that please guide me.
