setting up a read only group along with the normal dev. group

I have already R.T.F.M. and didn't find what I was looking for.  Is it
possible to set up your repository so "other" groups have read only access?
If so, how is it done?  Our repository is on a UNIX machine and I've tried
everything that I know to try.  

The manual says that all directories must have write permissions for whoever
needs to checkout from the repository so that CVS can create the temporary
lock files.  It also said that the files themselves should be read only.  It
just doesn't seem possible to have one group with read/write permissions and
one with read-only on the same repository if the only file permission you
need to change/update a file in the repository is read.  

This makes absolutely no sense.  Someone please enlighten me!  Any help
would be greatly appreciated,
