Question about RCS files

I am a CVS newbie and I would like to do/have the following:

There is a Server with an CVS Repository "sv" in the path /var/lib/cvs/sv.

On the clients I work with:

CVS checkout is done by:
    cd "/SOMEWHERE";
    cvs -d "$CVSROOT" checkout sv;
CVS update is done by:
    cd "/SOMEWHERE/sv";
    cvs -d "$CVSROOT" update -dP;

CVS commit is done by:
    cd "/SOMEWHERE/sv";
    cvs -d "$CVSROOT" commit;

I describe all this because I dunno if you might need this information to 
answer me the following question:

I thought that the CVS-Tree LOCAL and on the SERVER are IDENTICAL (after I did 
an update).

But on the server the files end with ",v" and have all the comments and version 
stuff inside.

I now know that these files are the rcs files (the backbone of the cvs?).

But I need an exact copy of the version a CLIENT has in its /SOMEWHERE/sv dir 
on the SERVER (so without the rcs stuff).

How can I achieve this? Do I have to to do an cvs-checkout on the server and 
cvs-update everytime a client did commit something?

Or can I say to the server somehow to keep automatically the rcs stuff seperate 
in one dir and an "client-like-copy" of the cvs-repository in another dir?

Thanks a lot for any help in advance!
