New to CVS - looking to accomplish...

Like the subject line says, I'm a newbie to CVS - if I've got explicit 
instructions, I can grab a branch out of a repository, go to work on it, 
and commit any changes I make. 

However, I'm doing a "run-it-myself" cvs repository on my home machine - 
PowerMac G4, Mac OS X 10.4.fullyupdated

$ cvs -version

Concurrent Versions System (CVS) 1.11.20 (client/server)

Copyright (C) 2005 Free Software Foundation, Inc.

Clearly, this is an older install - So long as it works, I'm happy! I 
don't need to be "on the bleeding edge" (My hardware ought to prove 

Anyway, what I'm trying to find is a way (either built into cvs itself, 
or in the form of an external program) to look at a repository and get a 
"tree" view of the files embedded in the projects stored in it.

So I'd give a command and see something similar to what I'd get from a 
recursive ls -al performed on the project within the repository, if that 
makes any sense. Ideal solution would allow the user to choose what 
tags, branches, etc are keyed on.

Could someone point me at the right place to look to find such a beast?

(or the proper incantation for Google - I'm not getting the answer I 
need there. I suspect because I'm not asking the right question. Or not 
asking the question right. Or both!)
