You don't need to do cvs init on the client side (is this a
client/server arrangement?  It's not clear to me).

Also you don't want to specify the CVSROOT directory.  i.e. just ust
/home/cvs here because it has to match what you use with the :pserver:
line below.

This has to match the root dir you cvs init'd above.
