First,  you need to learn some operating system basics. "Command not found"
means that the operating system (in this case, a Cygwin shell operating
under Windows) does not understand the command "cvs".

When you installed Cygwin, you did not install CVS. Re-run the Cygwin setup,
and make sure you have selected CVS (it's under the "Devel" tree, IIRC).
