By common means - install compiler, probably gcc , build, edit config file

alter file permissions so only pserver is runnable by less priviliged users

I would download CVS as a RPM_package from IBM.

install with rpm -Uvh

make the CVS-ROOT Filesystem  (e.g: /usr/local/cvsroot )
make a test-repository: cvs -d /usr/local/cvsroot/test1 init
Set group_ID sticky bit:
chmod g+s /usr/local/cvsroot/test1
add group cvsuser :
chgrp cvsuser /usr/local/cvsroot/test1
change /etc/inetd.conf:
cvspserver1 stream tcp nowait root /usr/bin/cvs cvs -f --allow-root=/usr/local/cvsroot/test1 pserver
restart inetd:
update /etc/services:
cvspserver1 2401/tcp
set in $CVSROOT/CVSROOT/config "SystemAuth" to "yes"

this should bring you at least somewhere..
