CVS Setup Help Needed

        I'm running Slackware, I installed the latest CVS, and went through 
it up.  I set up the port as per the docs, and configured inetd.conf with
the following:

cvs -f -allow-root=/cvsroot pserver

/cvsroot is a partition I have that will be dedicated solely to cvs.

However, its not working.  I tried typing cvs-f -allow-root=/cvsroot pserver
while logged in as root from the console, and it just sits there until I hit
return or type something and hit return, then spits back the following

cvs [pserver aborted]: bad auth protocol start: <whatever I type before
hitting return, or blank if I just hit return>

Note, there are two dashes before allow, but stupid MS-Word won't let me
keep it that way.

On the same note (but a little OT), how can I cut and paste from vi (I want
to cut the encrypted password from /etc/passwd and put it in the cvspasswd
file (whatever its called... I'm not at home so I can't look at it)?

Thanks a ton!
