Unhappy CVS remote setup for RedHat 8.0

Trying to setup a CVS repository on my linux box (RedHat 8.0). I want to use my WinXP box as my cvs client that is on my intranet. By default, pserver is not setup for RedHat 8. I have tried to setup the pserver:

1. Created group cvs
2. Created user cvsroot
3. Created file /etc/xinet.d/cvspserver:
# cvs server
service cvspserver
socket_type = stream
protocol = tcp
wait = no
user = cvsroot
group = cvs
port = 2401
server = /usr/bin/cvs
env = '$HOME=/home/cvsroot'
servar_args = -f --allow-root=/home/cvsroot/ pserver
disable = no
4. restart xinetd
5. attempt to login:
[root@linux xinetd.d]# cvs -d server:cvsroot@linux:/cvsroot login
Logging in to server:cvsroot@linux:2401/cvsroot
CVS password:
cvs [login aborted]: unrecognized auth response from linux: Usage: cvs [cvs-options] command [command-options-and-arguments]

What am I doing wrong? Or does someone have a better suggestion than using pserver?

If you can help me get the cvs repository going and accessible from my Win box, I'd appreciate it. I've used CVSNT before and had no problems, just having problems getting it working on my linux box.

Well, got SSH access running using putty on my windows machine for use with WinCVS. Still interested in why pserver may not be running
