You should really search the email archives before asking questions like these.
This question has come up quite a few times.

Anyhow, I found no need to unset HOME for inetd on my OSX box to make CVS 
work.  It's possible that this means you have some rc files somewhere which I
don't.  I'm not really clear on why some systems set it for inetd and some don't
as I've never encountered the problem myself.

Anyhow, one of the prescribed methods for dealing with this is to call `env' and
use it to clear the environment before calling cvs in inetd.  The command 
something like:

  2401  stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/bin/env env -i cvs -f
--allow-root=/usr/cvsroot pserver
