Unhappy CVS?????? how do you set it up?

I am trying to get some source code via CVS. I just don't know how to set it up or whatever. it won't let me login in because it couldn't find a file in my home directory.
the file is '.cvspass'. Now what do i do to fix this problem. I really want to get this source code. It is the Transgaming WineX source. Well i would appreciate if anyone could let me know how to take care of this. Thanks

Everything is a project, so to speak
cd /usr/local/cvsroot
type cvs init

Create a directory under your /home directory

cd to the new directory
cd /home/yourname/cvsdata

Create the repository
cvs import -m "my data" cvsdata cvsdata start
cvs checkout cvsdata
cvs commit cvsdata

Your directory is now setup
Add a file to /home/yourname/cvsdata/
cvs add
Commit to cvs
cvs commit

You can then remove it
Whenever you want to check it out, cd to /home/yourname

cvs co cvsdata/
this wll put a copy in /home/yourname/cvsdata
