I didn't know installing cvs would be this complicated...
I was actually looking all over the internet for tutorials on how to
install cvs.  I found tutorials that show people as root installing and
using cvs, but I guess those tutorials are wrong.  (See

create an account called "cvs" _without_ administrative privileges.

I am definitely unfamiliar with that syntax.  I mean, is nn0() a
function that takes a "c/c++" style char *?

I am actually very new to linux as I have been using windows for about
10 years.

I have no idea what a lock directory is... and I definitely don't know
how to make groups own a certain directory.  If there's a book for
total linux noobies on how to install cvs, I will definitely buy that
Either that or I'll end up spending a couple months trying to figure
out everything.
