How can I achieve this? Do I have to to do an cvs-checkout

You have to do a cvs-checkout into a separate directory on the server, and then perform a cvs-update every time a client does a commit. In UN*X you can do the checkout on a cron job periodically. In Windows I think you can use cygwin to set up a cron job as well. You could also abuse the "loginfo" script so that after every commit the server runs a "cvs update" in you checked-out directory.
