Looks to me like:
server_args                     = cvs -f
should become:
server_args                     = -f
--allow-root=/var/projects/webv1/cvsroot pserver

        Hello. I am having trouble starting up cvs for
        direction connections from clients using xinetd on Red
        Hat 7.2. I orginally tried to one-line entry suggested
        in the CVS documentation:
        2401 stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs -f
        --allow-root=/var/projects/webv1/cvsroot pserver
        but received the error message from xinetd that the
        service keyword was missing. Next, I set up a standard
        service entry:
        service pserver
                socket_type                     = stream
                protocol                        = tcp
                port                            = 2401
                wait                            = no
                user                            = root
                server                          = /usr/bin/cvs
                server_args                     = cvs -f
        Using this entry, the service starts successfully.
        However, when I attempt to connect from a client, I
        get the error "unknown command: cvs". If I remove the
        cvs text from the server_args entry, I get the "usage"
        error. Can someone help me figure this out?
