If you have an IRC (chatting) client you can get help in 'real time' from
people who use and develop CVS all the time...

open IRC and type "/server irc.freenode.net", 
then "/join #cvs"

'#cvs' is the chat channel where they talk about CVS.

If you are nice and polite they may help you with all your problems,
although I found it depends a lot on the particular chat room on how much
they are willing to help a beginner.

mailinglists are so yesterday ;)

Else find the CVS manual and begin at the beginning :(

Hey! I just found '#bioinformatics' on irc.freenode.net!
