    By common means - install compiler, probably gcc , build, edit config file
    >And also I want to restrict the user by using "pserver".
    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..
