First of all, where do you want your repository located?  the 'init'
command will create the CVSROOT folder for you.  *If* you have not been
able to import anythign into cvs I recommend doing this:
rm -rf /home/cvs        # WARNING this will erase any existing modules
mkdir /home/cvs
cvs -d /home/cvs init

now, your CVSROOT will be:
export CVSROOT=:local:/home/cvs

and to login you can do:
export CVSROOT=:local:/home/cvs
cvs login


cvs -d :local:/home/cvs login
