I think you mean cvs import -- init just creates a repository, it does
not populate it with user files.

If you can distinguish the binary files from the text files by their
names (e.g., *.gif files are always binary), you can use the CVS
wrappers facility to automatically handle the files correctly -- see the
manual for details (and note that you can specify -W as many times as
you need to on the import command):
