        As the subject says i'm new to CVS and from what I have read about it, 
sounds really good. "BUT" I was wondering if it can handle excel .xls files
? and word .doc files the same way it can handle .txt files ? as I am

Not exactly the same, but the same. When you add those files, you must be sure to tell CVS that they are binary files (-kb option from command line, "add binary" button on WinCVS), after that, everything is the same (except that when you diff binary files, since CVS has no way to interpret differences, it can only tell you "same" or "different").

looking for something that can do what cvs can do but i have spreadsheets
that about two or three people will need to edit and update at a time. At
the min they have to wait for each other to get out of the file.

        You seem to be headed down the right path.

also there are people that need to just look at the spreadsheets to get data
off them can you set it up so people can view the files but not edit them ?
is there that sort of security on cvs ?

It can be done, but is dependent on the specifics of your server implementation.
