Help with CVS and Quanta Plus

I have just installed SuSE 10, everything seems to be running correctly. Can anyone point me in the right direction to learn how to set up CVS and Quanta so I can work on some of my web coding projects. I am new to Linux, having used MS VSS and Cold Fusion Studio in Windows. I have "Version Management with CVS" by Per Cederquist, but it's a little too complicated for me. Any pointers would be appreciated.

I've never used Quanta, so I can't help with that. As for CVS, what do you want to do with it? Do you need to connect to a remote CVS repository to get/put files, or do you need to set up a repository on your machine to house files. In wither case, you have to define your CVSROOT environment variable (make a directory on your machine if local or use your remote repository) and then you can use cvs add, cvs checkout, etc. I'd suggest typing "man cvs" (no quotes) at a command prompt to learn about CVS.

Quanta uses a Cervisa interface, which I don't really understand either. I have 2 developers, myself plus one. So, I will need local access to CVS and the second programmer will need remote access. Both of us are on SUSE 10, and Samba seems to be working great. How do I set these environment variables, and then, how do I keep them set, even after reboot, since I am planning to put each project under a different folder within the same repository.
