Why in heaven's name would you do that?!?  Run a CVS server on the
server machine instead and use client/server CVS; it will save you no
end of grief.

Samba uses DOS/Windows permissions, which are quite different from Unix
permissions, and mapping back and forth doesn't quite work from CVS's
viewpoint.  If you insist on proceding down this rocky and highly unsafe
path, there are (or at least used to be) some tips on the Samba web site
for configuring it correctly for CVS.
