Have you tested it? Do this on the command line :

cvs co <module>

(where <module> is a name of a module you have in CVS).

Are you trying to use this CVSROOT in CVSWeb? Because CVSWeb cannot
use a remote repository, it muts be ON, and use

This is the only one that will work.

This does not matter for CVSWeb.

ext and pserver are mutually exclusive.

No, that's a problem with the CGI. 
You might want to try ViewCVS, it's easier to get running:

pserver doesn't have to be running to use CVS via SSH or locally (like
CVSWeb uses). If you don't need pserver, don't run it. SSH is better.
