That is an ancient version.  You may want to upgrade to the current
release (1.11.1p1), which you can find at

No, no, no!  Your CVSROOT should be set to a *new* directory where you
will keep your repository, not an existing directory!  And you almost
certainly don't want it to be under root's home directory.

NEVER run CVS commands inside the repository!  Most CVS commands should
be run inside a directory that has been checked out from CVS; things
like checkout should be run in a normal user directory.
