It might help to know exactly what you put in /etc/init.d/cvs.  You also
might want to check that you put it in the right place -- xinetd usually
keeps its config files in /etc/xinetd.d.

There's no need to do init twice -- it's generally best to set $CVSROOT
first and then just do "cvs init".  However, you almost certainly want
$CVSROOT to be just /home/cvs.

Why the sudden switch from local mode to pserver mode?  In any event,
the path name there (/home/cvs/) must *exactly* match an --allow-root
argument in the pserver invocation in /etc/init.d/cvs.  And you don't
want the trailing slash -- it will confuse CVS sooner or later.
