CVS - Concurrent Version System - http://whatis.techtarget.com/definition/0,289893,sid9_gci211874,00.html
SVN - Subversion - http://en.wikipedia.org/wiki/Subversion_%28software%29

They are 2 similar systems that allows developers versioning control but SVN is newer and designed to address certain perceived weaknesses in CVS

See here for a direct comparison http://www.pushok.com/soft_svn_vscvs.php

Ask the Experts
svn and cvs are all open source version control system.

svn was created due to some lack of features in cvs. You can say that a lot of people are gradually moving from cvs to svn and I already did.

I suggest that you go directy to svn and cvs is considered outdated (though still used in many places):
