As usual, the answer begins with "That depends...".  If you don't care
about revision control on the scripts, then you can just copy them into
the directory.  If you do want revision control, then you need to follow
the basic process you outlined with just a few corrections:

> - checkout the $CVSROOT/CVSROOT directory
> - cvs add file

Set the permissions the way you want them now and CVS will preserve them
for you.

Also modify the checkoutlist file to include your new file.

No.  If you added your file to checkoutlist, CVS should check it out
automatically.  (And will do so every time to commit changes to it in
the future.)  If you neglected to do that, simply do so now and CVS will
checkout your file when you checkin the change to checkoutlist.

> - Ensure correct rwx permissions for ../CVSROOT/

A good idea, but it shouldn't be necessary if you set them correctly
before checking it in the first time.  If you neglected to do that, you
can set the permissions on the RCS file and CVS should copy them to the
checkout out file in the future.
