It sounds like you still don't have any idea what you're doing.  Have
you read the manual, particularly:

You should have the files you want to import in a directory that is
*NOT* under the repository.  In that directory, you then run import and
tell it where in the repository you want it to put the files:

        cvs import -m'new stuff' module/subdir VENDTAG RELTAG
