Make sure that the xinetd package is installed and working then, as root:

yum install cvs
chkconfig cvs on
service xinetd restart
cvs -d /var/cvs init

Arrange for users to have the proper levels of access to /var/cvs.

SSH access is enabled by default so this will work on Linux:

export CVSROOT=:ext:userid@hostname.domain:/var/cvs

and this will do it for Eclipse/Rational tools:

:extssh:userid@hostname.domain:/var/cvs
