Yes, exactly what the error message says: "Server configuration missing
--allow-root in inetd.conf".  The CVS line in /etc/inetd.conf should
look something like:

  cvspserver  stream  tcp  nowait  root  /usr/bin/cvs  cvs -f 
--allow-root=/my/path pserver

You're missing the --allow-root= part.

You're also running a fairly old version.  You might want to consider
updating to the lastest (1.11.1p1) from
