Since it seems you did not install yet a version control system, I would suggest using SVN (subversion) instead of CVS. It is much easier to administer and it provides a lot of extra functionalities when compared with CVS. More info and full documentation here http://subversion.tigris.org/.

I'm no longer using FC4 (I'm on FC6) so... I'm not entierly sure if a simple "yum install subversion" works. If not, take a look at the http://downloads.open.collab.net/collabnet-subversion.html binaries provided by collab.net. The ones for RedHat ES4 should work without problems on FC4.
