Also, CVS doesn't have a checkout process.  Unlike VSS, you never have to
know who has a file checked out, etc.  

Your local cvs workspace knows exactly which files you have touched, etc.
If two people are working on the same file, then the first released is OK,
the second released will get a merge / conflict.  The second developer will
have to manually merge the two changes.

I'm using WSAD / Eclipse so it makes the merge process very easy.

hope it helps...

No, it does not; hence the name, Concurrent Versions System.  When multiple
users have the same file checked out, each can make independent changes
simultaneously.  CVS does the dirty work of merging the changes when the
file is committed back to the repository.
