If all the things you told me are true, then cvsweb is running just fine,
you never said there was a problem.  Although, I would be quick to say,
ViewCVS is a better product in my opinion.  You can find details at:  It requires Python 1.5, BTW.

But seriously... because your question is "devoid of details" no one can
help you.  Honestly, I don't even see what the problem is.  Why didn't the
INSTALL and README help?  Did they not have installation instructions?  Is
it possible that you might not understand the basics of how web servers and
cgi scripts interact?  What were you expecting to happen?  Is smoke coming
from your server?

Also, if your system administrator is clueless, then I recommend one of the
  a. Fire him.. he's obviously too ignorant to be runing complicated systems
  b. Ask him again; he's probably lying and doesn't want to take the time to
read over the installation and readme files for you. (BOFH)
  c. It's possible that cvsweb doesn't have proper instructions to help
someone get started. (seriously unlikely, being that it's pretty popular.)
