CVSROOT/passwd to set cvs user id to "cvs" worked ok so we then added
individual users here, like "cvslth". "cvslth" was also a member of the
group "cvs" using group access settings. We had imagined that would
work, but it did not. All rights within /data was "rwxrwxr-x" for files
and dirs.

Did you chmod g+wrx /data or chmod -R g+wrx /data?  What error messages
were you seeing?

live with using several repositories on the same server, but this
doesn't seem possible as there is only one /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver file
on the server stating where the repository lies, right? The texts on
multiple repositories we have found all talk about checking out from
different server to the same directories on the client which is not what
we want.

You could set them up as different --allow-root options to your cvs
server executable in /etc/xinetd.d/cvspserver
