I'm not familiar with SeeBeyond, but I'll address the general integration issue.

There are two points to integrating CVS with an existing project: the source
code and associated files, and the build system (IDE in this case?).

If your source code is comprised of mostly plain-text files, integration is
easier. If you are trying to manage a bunch of graphics, MS-Word DOC files, or
other 'non-mergable' (binary) files, it is still possible, but more cumbersome.
Both of these situations are well documented in the manual.

Since CVS is a command-line utility, it will integrate with anything that can
call it and capture the output. If your system can't handle command-line utils,
but has a SCC interface, you can try Igloo (there may be others, too). Igloo
<> is a front-end for Microsoft's SCC interface.
Any IDE that supports SCC should work with Igloo.

Hope this gets you started.
