Setting up CVS

My host runs Red Hat and recently installed the CVS RPM. I'm on a shared hosting plan so I don't have root access. How do I set up a CVS repository under my account so that members of my development team can work on a collective PHP project?

I have searched and experimented for days but CVS is so damn convoluted I can't figure out it.

CVS is installed for sure:
-bash-2.05b$ which cvs
Any help would be appreciated.

Thanks, I'm looking into it now. It seems to assume that you may have root access, though (for creating a usergroup).
