Hi all

im having problem in checking out a directory, whenever i execute cvs
checkout, im getting the following error

$ cvs checkout -P -d cvsTools Blockbuster/hnadra/cvsTools
bash: cvs: command not found

This means that cvs is not installed in your path.
The output of the following should help folks diagnose what you need to do next.

Are you the administrator of the machine?
if the answer is no,
        contact the administrator and ask
        that person to help you get cvs in your path.
        continue to gather the information listed below

1) is there a cvs binary on the machine?
execute: locate cvs|grep bin\/cvs$
if it finds something, then you need to get that directory in your path.

2) are you on a machine configured to get programs using yum, and does it have a cvs package the admin could install?
execute: yum info cvs
if it comes back with something like:
Name       : cvs
Arch       : i386
Version    : ....
then the admin could execute 'yum -y install cvs' to install cvs.
{similar commands could be done on an apt machine, but I have no experience with apt}
