If you are using the Mandrake CVS RPM everything should be set up
automagically. You just need to add the path to your repository to

If you are using your own compiled version of CVS try this somewhat more
generic solution.
Try to add a file cvspserver to /etc/xinetd.d/, which contains

service cvspserver
        socket_type         = stream
        protocol            = tcp
        wait                = no
        user                = root
        passenv             = 
        server              = /usr/bin/cvs
        server_args         = --allow-root=/path/to/cvs/repo

I don't know what this has to do with trying to solve Ken's problem.

30 lines of text with just no information. Very interesting.
