Setting up pserver - beginner problems

I am attempting to set up the pserver service on my linux server so that I can create a CVS repository there for code which will be developed on our Windows XP boxes.
I am getting the following error when attempting to connect to the service via wincvs:

cvs [init aborted]: Error reading from server -1: Unknown error

Checking via telnet to port 2401, I get

Usage: cvs [cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments]
where cvs-options are -q, -n, etc.
(specify --help-options for a list of options)
where command is add, admin, etc.
(specify --help-commands for a list of commands or --help-synonyms for a list of command synonyms)
where command-options-and-arguments depend on the specific command
(specify -H followed by a command name for command-specific help)
Specify --help to receive this message

The Concurrent Versions System (CVS) is a tool for version control.
For CVS updates and additional information, see the CVS home page at

Connection to host lost.

So, I'm thinking the problem has to do with the command line in the inetd.conf file.

I have this:
cvspserver stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs --allow-root=/cvspserver

Can anyone point me in the right direction?
